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.

May Review - June Preview
*11 layouts - 1 was digital, 1 was 8 1/2x11, the rest were 12x12
*1 mini-album - Dawn's 50th Surprise Party 6x6 album
*2 art journal pages
I participated in BPC's Creative Crop on National Scrapbook Day and tried my hand at a couple of Shimelle's Scrapbooking Day challenges as well. I completed Shimelle's Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers class, the BPC May with May workshop, and Kim Klassen's Photoshop Skinny Mini eCourse. I also enjoyed participating in the Familyx12 Blog Hop and the Lighten Up Blog Hop.
*create cards for July
*create yellow layouts to play along with Brenda's quilting
*coach in the Finding Photo Freedom workshop
That certainly seems like a short list for June, however it will be a very full month as my nieces have their summer visits scheduled and have already sent me the lists of things they want to do while visiting Aunt Melissa & Uncle Robbie. (bike riding, ice skating, playing games, baking cupcakes & cookies, going to the library, reading, playing at the park, etc) I totally love these visits and afterwards I have lots of new photos to scrap!
What are your plans for June? Anyone else have family visits planned for the summer?
