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.

January Top Five #5 - Me, Too!

Each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month.I chose a digital template from this month's Simple Scrapper membership materials and papers from my digital stash to help me quickly complete my fifth layout before the month ends at midnight tonight!


Journaling reads: Summer spent all day Saturday with us when Kim & James took their trip to New York. We didn’t do anything special, just strolled around McKinney Trade Days, stopped at the shops on Stacy Road, ate leftovers, created cards in my craft room & worked on a puzzle. When Kim asked Summer about the day, Summer said she had a great time. Kim commented, “Don’t you just love Robbie, he treats her like a princess.” Summer replied, “Me, too!” I love the fact that although we didn’t do anything special, Summer felt like she’d been treated like a princess. Robbie’s not sure what he did that caused her to feel that way, but I know exactly what it was. He was just being himself!

I'm so excited to have my top five stories and photos from January scrapped and am thankful to Jo for the INSPIRATION to take on this challenge each month! Have you scrapped your favorites from January yet?

Thanks Barabara ! Unfortunately I can’t take credit as this was a digital template from Simple Scrapper – I just couldn’t resist using it. I’d love to try it with a paper layout someday, too.

I love the colors and the butterflies scattering above. Great journaling, even though I haven't met Robbie, I know from photos and your words about him he is a wonderful man :)
