Dream (live full the life you have imagined) - Stuck?! Sept 15th reveal

A new sketch at Stuck?! Sketches, and I was really inspired by this sketch, though my take on it is a little different from the original sketch.
Here's the sketch:
And this is my take on it:
As you can see, I didn't use multi-photos, but instead of the rectangles in the original sketch, I used diamond  chipboards (Creative Embellishments) as an accent to the photo I used.
This lo is full of mixed media techniques and mediums - gesso, stencils, masking and misting, modeling paste, stamping, embossing, etc.
I was inspired by two challenges - the challenge at Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo for September, with the theme of 'Imagine':
I tried to give a dreamy look and feeling to my page. I strongly believe that setting one's imagination free, dreaming, is aSn essential part of a healthy soal. building castles in the sand, which is what my boy was doing when I took this photo, is one of the ways to set your imagination free.
The other challenge I was inspired by is the September moodboard at Sassy Scrappers:
Isn't this moodboard just gorgeous? I was inspired by the colors, the beach theme and the distressing look. I tried to mimic the sand look with the embossing powder, and I added some stamped shells.
I would also like to enter it to September's challenge at Creative Embellishments, which is to use a fav CE products. I just LOVE their chippies, and can't have enough of them :). and it also goes for the 'Summer Memories' challenge at Stampendous, and I used some of their gorgeous embossing powders.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
