Summer StashBuster Pre-Challenge!

As promised, here is the first StashBuster Challenge - which is actually a pre-challenge, as the "program" will start on Sunday.
This time around we are posting a challenge for you every 3 days. You will get 5 points for completing the challenge, and each challenge has an additional 5 bonus points available.

For the Pre-Challenge, you have a product list to of commonly stashed items to use, and you must use at least 4 of the 5 items on the list:

1. Any Basic Grey paper line
2. A crocheted or hand-sewn item
3. Prima flower(s)
4. A Thickers alphabet
5. Photo corner(s)

The bonus for this challenge is to follow the sketch below. This was the left side of Kathleen's QT2 layout from Spring Survival:

My interpretation of the sketch is this:

And here is what I used:
Patterned Papers: Basic Grey Skate Shoppe
Flowers: Prima/Imaginisce (crocheted)
Photo Corner: Basic Grey chipboard
Alphabet: Thickers
Brads: O'Scrap

Using the sketch, this layout literally came together in under an hour, and I really like the results. I can't wait to see what you do with the first challenge! And yes, points will count for this challenge too!
