Collage Magazine Journal

Back in the day I lived with a girl named Betsey.
She had a hideously annoying voice. 
But for Christmas she created this beautiful collage journal for our other roommate.
And I fell in love with the idea. 
I've done a couple as Christmas presents before.
And I always love them.
Even though they take forever to make.
Maybe one day I'll make one and actually keep it for myself.

I made one tonight.
I bought a big magazine (because they have tons of pictures in them).
And I cut out anything that looked cool.
And then I got to arranging the pieces. 

I'm only doing the front cover (since it does take quite a bit of time). 
But I'm quite pleased with the result.

You like?

Hahah are you and Betsey still friends? Does she know you feel that way about her voice? Vanessa made me one of those journals for Christmas one year. I love it. Yours looks great!

Oooo I much like it. Why the H though?

The "H" is cause it was for someone with a name that started with H
