Bookmarks for the Beach

When I was looking through the bookmarks uploaded to the JustRite Bookmark It challenge I was inspired by Jenny L.'s submission. I liked the idea of the folded bookmark with the magnet closure.
So in my quest to use what I have and create something new I made 8 bookmarks. The reason for 8 is because I'm headed to Tampa July 3rd for my nephews graduation party. It will be a mini family reunion since all my sisters (there are 4 of them) brothers-in-law and nephews, nieces and one girlfriend will be there. Of course there will be some beach time and naturally there will be reading at the beach so ergo we need bookmarks. I used the largest of the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and scored it at 3 inches. I stamped the Shells on one half and the Beach scene on the other half. The Shell sides are all colored the same with Copics and on the Beach side they're all the same except for the umbrella and the chair. I got my Copic air brush system out and tried to get a little fancy and as you can see I need more practice. I then searched all my bins for the magnet closures I've had for well over a year and finally found them right where I thought they would be (I had been throught that drawer several times and missed them--no wonder I buy things and then find I have duplicates). So another item sitting on my desk for way too long is used up.
Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.
