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.

Shimelle's Sixth Challenge & 500th Post Giveaway
The challenge for this layout is to scraplift a layout with a twist. Special crop guest Relly Annett-Baker shared how she took one of Shimelle's girly layouts and changed it to create a boy-themed layout. I decided to use the same layout design that both of them used, except that mine does not have a kid theme at all. I also left out the embellishment clusters in my layout because once I had the photos & journaling, I really felt that the layout was complete.
