Alright so i'm making a scrapbook for my fiance this Christmas Wink  I used an 12x12 photo album type book that i had.  Well its this really ugly boring green color.. I was wondering what i could possibly do to it to make it look nicer? I was thinking maybe modge podgeing some pictures on there... but i wouldn't have enough and i don't think it would look so good...
Any help would be great!

Oh I'm kind of the Mod Podge queen lately... Wink  I like your idea of using photos, but you could just use patterned paper to make a collage to fill up the empty spaces.  Yes?

Another idea is to use fabric and spray adhesive.  I think it's easier to spray on the fabric and then adhere it to the book cover. To make a nice finished edge, fold it over to the inside of the cover, then glue down a piece of card stock on the inside of the cover, covering the edges of your fabric.
