#237 September 2017

06 September 2017

School is starting up for us, now that September is here, and with that in mind, we have a super-fun Case File#237 inspired by a whimsical Scene found at Cavall Fort. Don't worry if you don't have school-related photos, as our Testimony clues have an assortment of ideas to inspire you.


sometimes you win, sometimes you learn

Its been some years since I was in school, but you never stop learning.

I have documented my lessons on life and the Christian journey in a little notebook tucked under the photograph.

No matter how far i have strayed, or how low i have sunk; the Lord was always by my side, waiting for me to learn to hold out my hand and accept his help.

Hallelujah and Amen

God is good and his mercy endureth forever

Psalm 100v5

    An absolutely beautiful layout, Debbie. The photo draws you in, and it fits in perfectly with the school theme. I love the stamped frame and glasses on acetate. I've never thought of doing that.
