Wreck this journal

As part of the Postcard challenge i've been doing set by Darcy  i kept seeing a name pop up Tee Thompson and seeing Random names and challenges. well i found the secret group on FB wha haha not so secret! and asked to join. Now i'm not too confident how secret this is as who can trust FB these days. 

Anywho there are a few familiar names on there from the postcards and a wreck this journal album. now i have seen this a few times on Amazon  its only a fiver but after doing a few google searches and blog hops i have decided to make my own.

now i have left out a few things out nothing too major but cos i thought i was running out of pages but i have some left over sods law. 

things as mostly in the same order as the book from a website i found via pinterest

so far i have wrote "WRECK THIS JOURNAL" on the cover and stuck on a strip of sticky back fabric. i have got some tacky "chrystals" that spell out Stephanie somewhere, i think someone got me them as part of a secret santa present many years ago. 
I am trying to stick to the basic principles of the "real book" 
This involves:
 writing my name in white - done 
 writing my name illegibly - done
 writing my name in tiny letters- done
 writing my name backwards- done
 writing my name very faintly
 writing my name in really big letters - done

Instructions - copied directly from the book, i might do more to this page.
What i love about this book it that its already wrecked as i've ripped pages out before
Materials - again copied the list and used fabric tape as a nod to Materials  
The next page i did said Chew on this. i just took a bite at the bottom 
Next page said crumple - i'm a bit disappointed with this might have to add colour and re-crumple
Next make a paper plane. - i cut out most of the page and folded into a traditional paper plane shape
Next i coloured both sides with pro markers (mainly cos the colour bled through)

Then i stuck it back in with some pink sticky tape
TEST PAGE - i have scribbled a few of the pens i've used so far, this will defo be a work in progress page
Place Sticky Things Here, i have gone with stickers.
Pink flowery lace tape, then clothes stickers from Paperchase that were randomly in my pen box and then some hearts from a scrapbook pack that had been left out 
Talk about self destructing, i left out the page that said crack the spine but i tried it anyway and the book fell apart!

i've stuck some PVA glue and some more pink lace tape to "fix" it!
