I got this Spongebob address book at WalMart, intending to use it as my craftster address book. I've been doing a lot of swapping, and it was sometimes not practical to have to turn on the computer just for an address. I needed to write them all down in the same place. I decided I wanted to redecorate it. Cheesy  Sorry Spongebob fans! But it's definitely more to my liking now.

Now:



It looks a little messy to me in this after pic, but the pic may just be a bit blurry. I glued patterned scrapbook paper on, then stamped and 'distressed' the edges with a brown stamp pad. I stamped on 'addresses' which is a bit crooked but I don't care, and added stickers.


BEFORE:



Voila! Let me know what you think. Comments rock! Wink

ETA: Replacing pics.

True! And the addresses aren't in there yet... but soon. Wink  The front page is still a huge pic of spongebob. So when you open it, it's a bit of a shock! Cheesy  I think I have a little more work to do.
