SB Top 50 - Scraplift challenge - April

A Scraplift Challenge is happening again over at SB top 50
The first challenge I have done is Bernii Miller (current SBM Master)
Here is Bernii's amazing page
and my interpretation of it:
 I kept a similar wooden background, just gesso'ed it to soften it
and kept all elements in similar spots
 also included the doilies.
Next up was also another current SBM Master, Raquel Bowman
Here is her page
Here is my page:
 I kept layers behind the photo, and wood veneer chevron. Also kept triangle corner
and washi strip at the bottom
 I added more misting with a textured backing
and added some micro beads to the paste and also used
some silver inka gold
Lastly and my favourite challenge was another current 
SBM Master, Sophie Koschmann
 Here is my page
 I kept layers behind photo and also used watercolours and misting.
 Changed my embellies to suit the boy photo and added some more splats
I always enjoy theses scraplift challenges and now I have my
mojo flowing again - Thanks SB top 50

Thanks for looking
