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.

This will be the opening page of my album and was inspired by Shimelle's Sketch Seven from earlier this year. I used blank Scrabble tiles and tiny number stickers for the date.
We enjoyed a fun vacation week that fall with a couple of motorcycle road trips. I used some brand new road map washi tape as the base for my embellishment clusters on this layout. This was also my first time to use a Project Life journal card - several of the ladies at the crop in Corsicana brought their extra cards to trade and they gave me a wonderful little stack of these fun cards.
This last layout will go near the end of the 2nd 2008 album (yes, it's 2 volumes) showcasing a couple of photos from Christmas Eve.
I'll be sharing more 2008 layouts in a few days - some in divided page protectors and others using memorabilia only with no photos.
