dans ma maison challenge

Hi, This is my entry for Dans Ma Maison challenge of Orange in the house
I created this one sometime ago I just found it as I was tidying up my creative mess... :))

It always seemed to me that it wasn't quite finished BUT when I came across it today I see it differently... The house as I look at it now has children from another life who have passed over they have come back to get into the photo that has been taken of the sisters in the background..well thats my story on this house with orange. How do you see it?
The paper's are those of Cosmo Cricket
The sisters stamp is one of Crafty Individuals
I am almost too late to post it for this challenge but better late than never.
