Counterfeit Kit Memorabilia Challenge

Here is my entry for the Counterfeit Kit Club Blog's  first challenge this month, "To Use Memorabilia on a Scrapbook Page".
My Page:
For this page, I used the yellow print cardstock from Little Yellow Bicycle, the pink grasscloth, a cordstock sticker banner from Echo Park, yellow floss, a pink satin  ribbon,a bottlecap, white trim, Primas, and white vinyl Thickers for the lettering, all from my Counterfeit Kit for April.
I based the layout on this sketch from Pencillines:


Here is a close-up of memorabilia on the page:
I flattened one of my bottle caps by sandwiching it in my Cuttlebug plates and running it through, then filled the center with Glossy Accents and just added a couple of the tiniest shells that she found. The only things that I added to this layout that were not in my April Counterfeit Kit  were a few of the Primas, and the brads for their centers, and I added a tiny felt bucket accent that I received from a past swap.
The challenges that I am entering with this layout are:
*For everyone who has not yet entered my giveaway, you have until midnight Central Daylight Time tonight! I will tally the entries and draw a winner over the weekend. Thank you to everyone for visiting my blog and becoming followers, I love you all!! Good luck!
