Scrap Our Stash - April Sketch with Stash Challenge

Hi there - I am up a little late with this post as I spent part of the weekend out of town due to my aunt's mom passing away.  She was in her late 70's but it is still tough whenever you lose a parent so wanted to be there for my aunt, uncle and cousin. So that has thrown my schedule off a bit this weekend.

Anyways, here are the guidelines for the Sketch with Stash Challenge #13:

Create a layout inspired by the sketch below and you must include the following stash items: 
a) 3 or more patterned papers from 3 or more different collections and/or manufacturers.
b) 3 or more embellishments from 3 different collections and/or manufacturers. 
c) Include one or more of the following items on your layout:
Corkboard, Chalkboard, or Corrugated board.
(This item does not count as one of your embellishments)
***When uploading your layout on your blog or gallery, you must list the collections/mfgs of each item you used for items in the A & B categories as well as note what item you used from the C category
Here's the April Sketch:

Here is my take on the challenge:

I started this layout with the Echo Park All About a Boy collection. It went perfectly with this photo of my oldest when he was just 5 months old! I added in papers to the Echo Park collection from Basic Grey, Jillibean Soup and One Little Bird for Studio Calico. My embellishments came from the Echo Park sticker sheet, a cutout from Elle's Studio (My Boy), and cork chevrons from Studio Calico. I incorporated cork by using cork thickers, stars die cut from cork paper and the Studio Calico chevrons. My layout stayed pretty close to the sketch - just changing up a few elements.

Would you like to play and join in the fun? You are more than welcome.
