notebook makeover

Finally, I have a little bit of time to fix my distressed notebook. It was a gift and I left the notebook untouched for over two year, I think. When I remembered about it and wanted to use to it, the cover is cracking and peeling but the pages are still good condition. The notebook still can be used but the cover needed a bit of work. Here is the notebook makeover...
