An Album in the Rough

I love discovering diamonds in the rough and hewing them into something a little more sparkley. This photo album had great potential, but a little puncture wound in his backside.

And a woefully grey interior view...

...which was simple enough to fix with a little spray adhesive and nice warm textural paper.

Add a few butterfly stickers and some of the vintage Japanese stamps I bought in Thailand to cover the hole, a green grosgrain ribbon, the initial of yours truly and Presto! Good as new. I'll be using this to store all my vintage postcards. One lady's junk is another lady's treasure.
