White with One Aqua/Chipboard Challenge

Hey All,
really getting into the world of on line challenge sites and have found them so much fun! They really get you out of your warm, cozy place (now you know that can get like an old sneaker, comfy but a little smelly!) and push your limits, get you thinking outside that square.
However, I think you can get really confused, with so many out there, which do you focus on? Well being a newbie to the "sport" I have decided to trawl through and pick just a few that will really inspire or push me over the edge (so to speak). So The White with One challenge really appealed as I rarely do monochromatic LO's and the colour was one of my faves, Aqua (yummo) and yay Chipboard! Okay so I didn't quite go out on a limb but easy does it for the newbie!!! Here is the result:

The photo is an oldie of my far away nieces who we rarely see except on Skype. This was taken way back in 2008 when they were last here. They are so grown up now and will probably chastise me severely for putting this up but I just love the photo!!!! Sorry girls!
Here are a few closies with a bit of this and a little of that, my job was done.

Used texture paste and the 6x6 crafters w/shop stencil to create a lumpy bumpy b/ground and splashed a bit of paint around to add to the grunge!!

Raided the first aid kit (no more amputations in this house) for the gauze to create texture with a bit of string here and there (loving making string flowers at the moment).
The chippie was a large ScrapFX flourish that I cut down to size and coated with gesso and Tim Holtz crackle paint, then, once dry, rubbed a stamp pad over it to bring out that crackle. 
Well thanks for dropping by, off to find my next challenge, be back real soon!
