Meet Velma.

So Lizzy and I and a bunch of girls were crafting before college- you know, picture holders, notebooks- all the things that you absolutely need to take... right?

There was glitter involved, lots of it.
And ice cream.

We were cutting out pictures from magazines for our notebook collages when I saw this foxy lady- I knew that she would be perfect for my book.
Who else would be so surprised and interested to hear all my day's stories?

She was originally in complete sepia, but I got out my Crayola markers and colored away at her lips and stripes....

... glued her onto the notebook....

... added some "vintage" touches, including ripping and roughing up edges...

... and proceeded to decorate the rest of the book with a Sharpie.

So, meet Velma.
I think she's my new best friend.
