Using the classic book “My Little Golden Book about God,” we will make very special project that will be a treasured keepsake as we take it apart and refashion it as a scrapbook. The darling illustrations by Eloise Wilkin perfectly compliment the Crate Paper products that we will be using in our books. The book can also be used for many topics: your spiritual journey, favorite scenery & nature photos, inspiring quotes, a prayer journal, or a place to record the little things – the stories of where you see God’s “fingerprints” in your life. You could add watercolor paper and make it a beautiful art journal. Debby can’t wait to tell the story of her life’s journey with God (and of His journey with her). She loves to tell her story to encourage her children and their children in the years to come as they face life’s challenges. You have a story that needs to be told, too! $65 CLICK TO REGISTER
