Altered Quote Book Catch-Up Post

 I finished the two above last night.  As I was taking the picture it occurred to me there were some pages I don't think I ever put on my blog.  A little catch-up post tonight.
 No clue who that guy is but I sure hope he didn't mind me putting a clown collar on him!
 The one on the right was made a very long time ago.  That guy doing his best James Dean is my Great Uncle.  I think the picture was taken in the 30s.
 A cheater where I just captioned someone else's photo on the left. Some people may not agree but my feeling is that as long as I am just making it for myself and not for profit, it doesn't do any harm.  Copyright law according to Kathy. Hmm.  Maybe that is why I didn't show these before. Feel free to give me a talking to.  The one on the right was one of the first ones in the altered book.
 Again, the one on the right is much older than the one on the left.  The right side seems easier to work on so I guess they get used first.
Same thing here.  The quote on the right is a very long one but one that is especially appropriate to my big girl job and I read it often.
Since I work randomly in the book it is kind of interesting to see the changes in my way of doing things and the different things I have tried.  Trust me, there have been a few do-overs for just that reason. 
I think I may rename this "The Never Ending Altered Book" project since I keep thinking I'm getting close to finished and then I'm not!

I really like how you combine the images with the quotes--makes them that much more interesting...half the fun is finding the quotes that speak to you--great job!

I like to see a beautiful photo and then on the other page a nice long quote. Love your copyright law! Your randomness is fantastic. Makes you go back over what you have done rather than not reviewing the past.

This is so great. I've often wished I could look through your book and this is a real treat! The quote with your great uncle is fantastic.

They all tell a story don't they? I say it's your book and you can do whatever you want to do!! That guy will just have to deal with his new clown collar. Very creative and always evolving.
