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.

Travel the World - Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week
Today's layout uses a divided page protector, this one a 12x12 with four 6x4 slots and one 12x4 slot, and once again uses Shimelle's cross-referencing concept. These photos document our first trip abroad together, an 18-day trip that took us to Russia, Italy and the UK. (Some of you may remember the inauspicious beginning to that trip recorded here.) When we returned, I created a huge block of 12x12 pages for our Travels Abroad album, however I wanted to include a snapshot of that trip in our 2007 album.
The divided page protector helped this layout come together very quickly. Do you use these types of pages protectors in your albums?
