The idea for this “Love in a Box” theme came from the Scripture verse, Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” In September of 2018, the ladies of our church attended a conference entitled “Times and Seasons.” As I reflect on that, I am reminded of God’s purpose for every process and His reason for every season of life. Time is precious so my desire was to share with my grandson and his mom via this “Love in a Box” how very precious they are to my husband and I, and how very valued are the times spent with them.
Paper Bag Photo Album
I saw this video series quite some time ago and anticipated on making this album in the near future…January being the perfect time. You can find instructions here: My Sisters Scrapper – There is a series of tutorials on making the photo album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Aj9oMQYtVg&list=FLfo8zLuFXvDfkcB62sxewGw&index=11&t=0s
Pics above are the front cover, spine, and back cover. It took me well over a month to put this together. Our grandson’s life from birth to present day. It truly was a labor of love, and my husband and I loved reminiscing through all those photos! The complete 6 page photo book can be seen on my pinterest page: https://www.pinterest.com/gencornish/ under “Love in a Box” board, section January 2019.
