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.

April Top Five #2 - Little Green Arrows
I found a new sketch challenge site recently and was inspired to use this month's layout sketch as INSPIRATION for my page showcasing photos from my visit to LeAnne's back in April. I just had to record the story of those stubborn rub-ons LeAnne used on one of her layouts!
The sketch from Scrapping Everyday Miracles caught my eye because of the strip of arrow embellishments along the top right of the layout. It also included space for four photos, and, with a few adjustments to the photo sizes, this came together very quickly.
I had additional photos from my visit that I wanted to use, so I created a companion layout using the same background paper.
I freehand cut the banner pieces and used my sewing machine to stitch them together.
Slowly but steadily I'm making progress on my Monthly Top Five! How about you?
