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.

Big Idea Festival - Wonder

I knew immediately which photos I wanted to scrap for the Day 2 word (WONDER) for the Big Idea Festival - the ones of my great-nephew enjoying chasing (& trying to taste!) bubbles last Thanksgiving. I drew inspiration from this layout that Sue created (I love her use of patterned paper and little bits & pieces.)

I'm hoping this afternoon to find time to scrap a couple of layouts before the start of a busy weekend - visiting family, church activities, outdoor flea market, & finishing a closet organization project. How about you - do you have a busy weekend planned?

Cute! I love the scallop/punched border. I don't have a whole lot planned, but my realtor is going to do an open house for me, so keeping my fingers crossed for the perfect buyer! :) Enjoy your busy weekend!

This is lovely - both the subject and the page. I really like the little bit over on the left, placed like a little bubble of its own! Yup. busy here getting ready for another two generations to descend!
