Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

What is Scrapbooking?

I love this quote by Stacy Julian from the Library of Memories class at BigPictureScrapbooking.com:

"Scrapbooking is anything you do with pictures and words, to honor a moment in time."
 
This means that even this blog post is a form of scrapbooking because I am sharing my photos and words!

Here is a scrapbook page I completed this week. I am creating different sized pages just based on what inspires me. This page is 6x12 and will eventually go in our "Melissa" scrapbook for pages about me before Robbie and I met.


This next page is an 8 1/2 x 11. I have a ton of photos from our visit to the zoo when Pun'kin was here for her spring break visit, but this is one of my absolute favorites. This page will go in our "People We Love" album. Eventually I'll probably also scrap some of the other photos from our day at the zoo for our "Places We've Been" album.


And this last page is a 12x12. These aren't even actually pictures I took but ones that my sister shared from her lesson teaching my twin nieces the letter "L". They were such fun pictures that I couldn't resist creating this page. This page will also go in our "People We Love" album.
