Paper Bag Devotional Journal – Consider it Joy – by Esther Asbury

Good Sunday morning!

Esther continues to work on her paper bag journal and we have an entry to share today dealing with what we consider joy – or better put, what God’s word would have us consider pure joy. This page has fun flaps that open to reveal her study. Take a look:

A fun bunny for this time of year – cut from the Carrot Bunny die by Tim Holtz.

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of many scripture verses in our set called Scripture for Graduation & Beyond.

Both oval dies used are from the same set - Elegant Ovals by Spellbinders.

Those cheery checked papers are from the pad Welcome Easter by Echo Park.

This shows the flaps that open to reveal Esther’s study inside.

This is a fun page design giving a lot of room to add the typewritten text.

I urge you to check out Esther’s study over on her blog – always a very  thought provoking and worthwhile read.

A fun project with a message worth sharing!

Thank you so much, Esther.

I always love your journal entry pages. They are truly a blessing!
