Broken Record Love Songs

SUBTITLED: The Home for My Poetry. I have written 59 to date, and I decided at some point that I want to publish a book of them so I decided to self-publish, because my book would look way cooler than anything with a paperback cover right? The cover is fabric wrapped around heavy chipboard; the record is an actual 45 that I dug out at my mom's... I was going to try to break it before I glued it on but couldn't figure out a good way to break a 45 without making shards of it.... the best part about this notebook is that it's SUPER THICK (probably 500 pages) and the paper inside is LINED PINK NOTEBOOK PAPER :D !!!! Yes, i know, it's SOOO me!!

Thanks for looking :D

we hatched the idea for ATC's for the critique group i co-host on Scrapbook.com back in March or April; the official start was in May, and we had until August 1st to have them finished and in the mail. just thought i'd show off!! the backsides have my contact info, doodled, and decorated w/ a Prima Flower and a metal star/moon charm. i got great cards from everyone else, too! what a neat turnout we had!
