So silly @ 48

This lo is for 2 challenges, both were very challenging for me and took me out of my comfort zone.
The 1st one is the sketch plus color combo challenge at Off the Rails Scrapbooking:
The sketch was lovely to work with, but the color combo was so out of my regular colors to work with! I ended up with a flame on my desk... LOL
The 2nd was from Challenge YOUrself, which asked to scrap myself , right now, at my age. Me?! at my age right now?! oh, my! that is what I call a challenge!
I used a photo that was taken a few months ago, when I was playing with my boys at a birthday party we had for the youngest. it was a game where you had to wear funny clothes, in no time, and I look so ridiculous LOL, hence the title - 'So silly @ 48'.
It's a Prima lo, inspired by a workshop by Stacey Young at Pop&Colours #3. 
Prima products I used:
Papers: script pad, Doodle-Deux collection ('Button-up'; Alpha-Bytes'), welcome to Paris collection ('Something about her'), Divine collection ('En L' air").
Other - alphas, wood buttons, flower center, junkyards findings, word sticker, stamps, paper clip and of course - flowers.
I also used Kaisercrafts rub-on,  gesso, modeling paste with masks and lots of mists here - Ayeeda mists from 13arts (chalk yellow amber), Tattered Angels glimmer mist (wheat beer), Mr. Huey's (first kiss, buttercup, gold, sherbet, warm calico, cameo, real red). the chipboards sign and numbers were coverd with gesso and then with a few coats of black UTEE, and I stamped the numbers with a script stamp. I added some cheeseclothe here and there.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
