Sketchabilities Challenge

Love this Sketch, but not 100% percentage in love with my final project, not searching for a compliment just stating a fact.  Not sure what i not liking.... just something.

here is the sketch check out the their blog at

 i started with a piece of basecoat paper from Kaiser craft, then i added texture and color with molding paste and distress ink.  Next i sprayed with perfect pearl mist biscotti.  I added another challenge to the sketch so i decided to use a monochromatic color scheme- all browns

Continue building the background with adding texture and bling with sequins and distress ink.  I added glue n seal in patches and scattered on the sequins and distress embossing powder. Of course brown.
next i painted hexagon chipboard outline with walnut distress paint, glued in place.  I mixed together perfect pearl cappucino with water and painted the hexagons.  I used pop dots to adhere so their all at different heights.  more brown.  I did break the brown rule by adding doddling around hexagon outline with white gel pen.

 the final, added chipboard view finders, tags, polaroid frame, and of course my kid looking like a punk.

the close ups- my favorite part the filmstrip attached onto the buckle.

Now a quick rant.  I have purchased a laser engraving so i can cut my own chipboard, i got all the laser lined up but it still won't cut.  Problem i am really not computer techy enough.  Does anyone have ideas???  Its a cheap Chinese import and the software sucks not sure if that's the problem.  HELP.
