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 Texas Star is the Ferris Wheel at the State Fair of Texas. We don't attend the fair every year, but when we do, we always ride the Texas Star. I scrolled through our digital photos (and scanned in a couple of print photos) to find photos of us at the fair. I used Photoshop Elements to crop them and add the year, then printed them to use for this layout that I absolutely love! It makes me so happy when something turns out just like I envisioned it!
We are actually riding the Texas Star in all (except one) of these photos, and I especially like how you can see parts of the Ferris wheel in the background.
Have you ever seen a piece of patterned paper and immediately envisioned a completed layout? How did it turn out?
