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.

C'mon get happy!  :-P

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?

One moment can change everything!

Live your life to the fullest every day!

Let your past remain behind you as you look forward to the future!

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.
