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.

July Red, White & Blues
Of course, we both got a good laugh when the colors for her quilting scrap challenge was announced for this month - it's red, white & blue! I guess she gets credit for being an early bird since she finished this one last month!
In my quest to play along and use my reds, whites & blues, I created the following layout about Why I Scrap for the week 1 assignment in the Mother LOAD workshop at BPC. I pulled this photo from my category drawers and used lots of different letters to describe my reasons for scrapping.
Mother LOAD workshop we are in training for the marathon of scrapping 26 layouts in 26 days during the month of September. These first two months of the workshop are designed to get us ready for that scrapping marathon!
This will be the first time I've tried to do a Layout A Day and I'm really excited about it. Have any of you completed a Layout A Day challenge? If so, I'd love to hear any tips you have for getting ready.
