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.

28 Sketches - the first three
Sketch 1 - Holiday Food Prep (12 x 12 one page layout)
Journaling reads: The menu may change from holiday to holiday and year to year, but there are some things that always appear - pecan pie, praline sweet potatoes, green beans & orange jello salad! Thanksgiving 2010
Sketch 2 - Thanksgiving 2011 (8 1/2 x 11 one page layout)
It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I wrote our menu for the day on that wavy brown cardstock at the bottom.
Sketch 3 - Curb Your Enthusiasm (12 x 12 one page layout)
I really like the simplicity of these sketches and am looking forward to using the other 25 sketches over the next several weeks. Anyone else taking this class?
