Untold Story of my Childhood

After quite a long time I finally finished another spread for my own altered book "Untold Stories". This one features one of my favourite quotes from song lyrics, from The Who´s song "Substitute". Since I´ve heard it for the first time, I take the plastic spoon as a symbol for underprivileged people, growing up in poverty. It´s my entry for this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s challenge "Spoons".
