Scrap Girls Retreat at home - Challenge 3

Challenge 3 was to take this mood board and inspire you to make a layout:
"It's time for CHALLENGE THREE! Here's a pretty pastel mood board to inspire you.

You have until midnight Friday 10 April to upload your layout in the comments below.

At Scrap Girls Retreats we don't judge you. Every entry for Challenge 3 will go into the draw for a Happy Scrap girls prize!"
And here is my layout:
As a family we would regularly holiday at The Entrance on the Central Coast of New South Wales. This photo shows from left, my mother, sister, me, and my brother at the swimming pool at The Entrance.  The back of the photo has identification of the photographer/photograph number so I can only think that in the 50's they took photos of people enjoying the sun.  I tried to google the photographer but alas nothing there.   My sister and I still talk about those swimsuits - they were shirred with elastic and I tried to replicate that with the sewn down pink washi tape on my layout.
I made the mini pinwheels from 1.5" squares.  I am trying to save a number of old photos from old albums hence the black and white photo..
And some of the detail:
I like a challenge that gets me out of my comfort zone - I don't usually use pastel colours.
