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.

Scraplifting Weekend 6
Sandra typically shares her Project Life spreads, Project365 photos and progress on updates to their little house, but this layout from a recent uncharacteristically productive crop called out to be scraplifted. I particularly liked how each of the two photos was layered over a "messy" stack of papers with a doily and various embellishments mixed in. On my layout, I was excited to use the "Look at Me!" die cuts because they came from the scrapbook kits I received on the cruise where these photos were taken!
This time I also took inspiration from the theme of Sandra's layout - then & now. While both of my photos are from our cruise, my journaling shares a then & now type story.
This was a FUN layout to put together and a great way to use up some patterned paper scraps.
Thanks for the inspiration Sandra!
