Windows to Yesterday

When I saw the challenge from scrapwhispers, I immediately started planning about it. The challenge is to reminisce about your childhood memories and to think of an activity, person or anything that brings all the memories back and there's nothing that reminds me of my teen years than my collection of stationeries and papers! (yes, I had the knack for papers since I was a kid).
So here is the outcome. I cut out some paper ads in one of my old scrapbooking magazine and used that as my picture.

I cut up some webster's pages and overlapped that with the picture.

I used one of the acetate frames from Hambly.
These papers remind me so much of my stationery collection when I was in high school. I've been fascinated with papers since then. I make sure I save up some of my allowance and make sure I got to bookstores every so often. It came to a point I had a drawer full of stationeries I just look at and don't use. I don't know what it is but there's something about collecting them that made me really really happy & that hasn't changed 17 years after...
