Those Places Thursday: Köln, Prußia - Grand Cathedral

This is the Grand Cathedral in Köln, Germany.  My husbands most elusive ancestor was an altar boy here in the 1840's and I am not the first to look for him, but I do intend to be the last. It is my quest to find the sneaky bugger, and find whether I really am married to the descendant of some long lost German royal person... Wouldn't it be fabulous if my girls really were princesses? 

For my scrapbooking friends...
I used DCWV's Rustic Stack for the paper, the Bible is from my Inspired Heart cartridge, the ribbon and bling were from my stash, and the journaling was printed from my computer, and filled in with blue gel pen.
