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 Twins' Visits PAS & Layouts
I pulled all the pages of photos from the twins three trips from my storage binders and sorted through them. I chose 100 photos for this PAS, left a few photos from each year in the storage binder because I had specific layout ideas for them (3 for 2008, 2 for 2009, and 3 for 2010), triaged most of the remaining photos into my category drawers, and then square punched the last few.
Since I've been spending time with these photos, I was inspired to create one of the remaining layouts that came to mind. I completed this one today based on a sketch from Lisa Day for the Big Idea Festival at BigPictureScrapbooking.com.
I am really loving the way this PAS came out and am looking forward to getting one put together for Pun'kin's visits from the past three years. Watch for upcoming posts showcasing new layouts and another PAS soon.
