Hey! they look really cool, even if they didn't turn out how you wanted. Can't wait to see your next ones!

You did a good job for your first try! I remember doing this in art class I think in my 9th grade year, mine turned out horrible! I'm going to have to do this again though, it was fun and I think I'd be better at it now!

Great job so far! I love all the little elements you included in the second sets of pages. It IS addicting! Grin

nice job! I've been thinking about doing these too, but I feel so badly about the book.

I usually grab books that people are selling at garage sales or that the library is giving away. I'd rather use them then let them be tossed out.

lucky for me I work at a used book store so all the damaged books that are not saleable we recycle or I take for crafts
