And here is my edit (image is clickable to see it larger):
What a beautiful little girl! I wanted the feel to be light, dreamy, ethereal, and warm. Using ACR and PS CS5:
~ adjusted the exposure and white balance (warmed it up, brightened)
~ ran Noiseware at very low opacity
~ slight levels adjustment
~ sharpened details, set to soft light at 35%
~ ran Florabella's Glam action, reduced to 30%
~ ran Paint the Moon's new free action "Jubilee", tweaked individual layers
~ added vignette set to overlay at 10%
