I have joined a circle journal/round robin started by Marilyn Healey. She was inspired by the Alphabetica book. Everyone in this project is so talented. As I was struggling to come up with a topic, as a joke I suggested, "Everything I know about life I learned from ABBA".
I was actually surprised by the positive response I received from it, even though it was a joke. After several more days of trying to come up with another theme (I was thinking of an "Eye Spy" kind of theme) I decided to keep the ABBA theme.
I had a vision in my head of a long, thin album. One weekend, I found a ledger journal at a yard sale. It was perfect. The exact thought I had in my head. I bought it for $1.00 and brought it home.
I have never altered much of anything before, especially nothing like this. I had a little issue with the cover. I soon discovered I needed some sort of binding tape. I made the cover design too big and had to cut down the tape. It's not as perfect as I want, but it will have to do. I have spent way toooooo much time on the cover. To re-do it, would take too much time and I didn't have anymore of that BasicGrey paper.
Here's the cover. It's gold, it's shiny, it's ABBA!!!!
