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.

Two Page Layouts
My Holiday Festivities, Friends & Fun layout showcases photos and memorabilia from throughout the month of December and was inspired by a layout in the old BPC 2011 Creative Crop workshop. I really like how the strong border across the bottom pulls all these miscellaneous photos together.
This Play, Play, Play layout was also inspired by a sample layout in the old BPC 2011 Creative Crop workshop and records the variety of FUN we had when our great-nephew was here for a week long visit.
This final layout for today holds lots of photos and several blocks of journaling about a ladies' event at our church. Several of my good friends came from out of town to help me out as guest speakers for this event on women mentoring women, and I needed quite a bit of room for journaling along with the photos and event information block I'd cut from the church bulletin.
As you can see, I'm making progress on our 2011 chronological albums. I'll definitely be working on more two page layouts as I continue. Do you create two page layouts? Or do you prefer to capture each story on one single page?
