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.

Exciting News!

Back in September, I created this layout . . .

and this layout . . .

as my Design Team Submission to my favorite (not-so) local scrapbook store, Scrappin' Goodtime. A few weeks later, I received an email letting me know that I had been selected for the 6-month Winter Design Team!!

I know many of you will recognize the store name because I've met some of my online/BPC friends there for crops over the past couple of years. It's a scrapbook store and retreat center - what could be better than cropping right next door to a store filled with the latest scrapbooking tools, papers, embellishments, adhesives, albums, etc, etc!

I'll be meeting with the other Design Team members this coming weekend, but I've already started work on my first project . . . which involves these fantastic New Year New You papers from Webster's Pages!

Have you seen or purchased these papers yet? What stories are you planning to document with them?
