Why Do I Scrapbook?

Last month, I joined the essay challenge at MWL. I tried to be funny hehehe and at the same time emotional. After all, scrapbooking is not just a current hobby, I plan to do this for a long (read as : maybe until I've used up all my papers) time.

I want to share an excerpt of what I wrote :

I am a paper lover. God bless the trees that hurt every time I say this. But, I love papers. I collected and traded scented stationeries when I was in my primary years. I store wrapping papers until recently, much to the chagrin of my husband. However, these days, I hoard 12x12 acid-free and lignin-free papers. That's my treasure which I am sure my two daughters will love when they come to age because it's antique and has not turned yellow. Just a thought though, will my funky "Love, Elsie" papers be categorized as vintage 20 to 30 years from now?

I did not win but I received a yummy Prima heart stamp and a handmade card from MWL. Woohoo! Thanks MWL!
