Summer Bookmark for MIL

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 390 - Lime Razzle Delight , Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 392 - Fold Over Bookmark and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 185 - Theme Summer Treats which for me is the BEACH since I never have like melons and ice cream is not on my list of items I can have.

I think my Mojo has gone on a sabatical for an extended period of time. I may need to just sit back and enjoy the galleries for a few days until it returns. I just seem to be struggling in my efforts lately not only with what to make, what to use but finding the time to make something has been an issue as well. Early & long days at work are NOT helping either.
If I am AWOL for sometime please forgive me and let me back in when I return :( 
Anyway this dp was just too pretty to cover up so I saved all of my detail creations for the inside. I folded the bottom edge of the lucky limeade cs up 1 inch to make a pocket for the bookmark to slide in. I left 1/2 inch on the bottom edge of the backside of the bookmark. I will give this to my MIL in November for her birthday. She reads a lot and I hope she will like it.
Stamps: none
Paper: lucky limeade, TPS Beach dp
