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.

Scrapbookers Anonymous November Challenge
The first paper I chose was a 2002 My Mind's Eye paper from their Frame-Ups Fun Paper series called Christmas Stripe. I had several of these pages and actually used a couple of them for my 2001 Christmas photos. Obviously they've been in my stash a while!
The second paper I chose was a Power Page from an old Me & My Big Ideas book of Christmas themed pages. I decided to use the photo block on this page for my photos.
Here's the completed layout. Since I did not have much other white in the layout, I covered the white strip with Magic Mesh, and I even included a Christmas ribbon as a "shelf" for my photo block. (It looks like there are shadows on the layout, but those shadows are actually on the photos because it was a very sunny day!)
