I've always loved records.  I still have a small collection of my own.  I've seen a few record covers turned into journals and have wanted to give it a try. 
I also love to thrift shop and go to garage sales.  On a recent visit to a thrift store, I found an interesting cover to an Anne Murray record.  I thought it would make a great recycled journal.  Anyway, here is what I made.  Tell me what you guys think.  Any constructive criticism would also be appreciated.

What a neat idea, and it came out great...I especially love the front cover.

Thanks.  It was the front cover that got my attention.  I'm not really an Anne Murray fan.

I think it's great! How do you do the binders like that? Is there a site that explains that?

It's actually a hand cranked machine that punches the holes and do the binding. 
Here is a site that shows an example of the machine I used.
I haven't looked for instructions.  A friend actually showed me how to use it.
I'll try to post a tutorial for the next one I make.
