CSI layout

This month I'm guest designer over at CSI.
 I started my stint with this challenge:

And this is my layout:
 The inspiration picture had a lovely whimsical feel which I wanted to capture in this layout.
I made a little book for the journaling, and the photo is the front cover of the book. I sanded and painted around the photo of Emily to give the photo a slightly unreal, illustrative quality. (At least that's what I was trying to achieve!)
As you can see, here's the wee book:
 I used ephemera related to reading and books-the eye charts, book fair flyer:
and pictures and text from an old children's book:
This was such a fun layout to make.
