Retro Book Covers

This morn I popped into the Friends of the Library book sale and could not pass on these Time Life books titled This Fabulous Century from 1972.  There were six books and it was $3.00 for all six!  What a deal for such beauty!  

I plan to gut them, recover the spines, redo the end papers and turn them into lovely journals ready for doodles and words!!!

Time for a trip to Scriptura to buy some beautiful papers : )

Just look at them… they’re fabulous!!!
