Sisters are Attached at the Heart - CSI and Off the Rails challenges

The new challenge is live at CSI. Here is my take on it. This page is also inspired by the 'chipboard' challenge at 'Off the Rails' scrapbooking since my title is a chipboard product from 2Crafty.

This photo that I took of my two girls is one of my all time favourite shots. They were both at the Phoenix Jazz Dance weekend workshop and it was Sophie's first time. She was very nervous. Natalie took her aside to give her some last minute advice and to boost her confidence a little. I took the photo over Natalie's shoulder so as not to interrupt the precious exchange that was occuring between these sisters.
My background paper is from Basic grey's 'Soleil' collection and is perfect for these colours. I chose the journaling card because it had the perfect sentiment for my layout. From the evidence list I used ombre, stamps/rub-ons and watercolours. I added more journaling on a tag slipped behind the photo using the inspiration words. Here are a couple of close-ups:
