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.

The Play! List
I have quite a long list of stories I want to scrap from my January trip to Play! in Anaheim, so I flipped open my storage binder and chose one of those for this challenge.
My friend Amy and I are both working our way through the materials in the Art + Science workshop right now, so I decided to start with a layout about how she ended up traveling and rooming with me for this FUN event.
Once I had all the main elements on the page - photos, journaling, papers - I pulled out one of my color drawers that holds small bits & pieces and was thrilled to find the "Travel Buddies" sticker that matched perfectly!
A few weeks ago, I completed another layout from this trip showcasing photos of the flowers Robbie had delivered to our hotel room. (This layout is loosely based on a sketch I had printed out back in June during Jennifer Grace's Refresh Your Craft & Soul blog event.)
That's two more items checked off the list of stories I want to tell from the Play! event . . . fifteen (or so) to go! Do you make lists of stories you want to scrap? How/where do you store the lists?
