Thank you for the challenge. Your moodboard inspired me in so many ways, though my page does not really look like it.

2 - sitting - I had the prefect photo I recently took
4 - the moon - all so moody, just like my daughter
5 - colorful - my daughter is an artist and her life is filled with paints and brushes
8 - the pattern - foliage elements are very similar
9 - keyboard - she plays and the two white-framed photos on the left with torn element underneath and a ribbon on top are the same color palette
12 - typewriter - numbers (her birthday) and the dotted transfer around the vertical photos
