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.

Snap 3 - Completed Layouts
I am very pleased with each of these layouts, but my favorite is the Bow Falls layout because I used papers that I probably never would have chosen if I hadn't been limited by the few things I quickly threw together when I was packing to head to Austin.
These papers work really well with the green waters of the Bow River (although the photo doesn't do it justice!). Here's a closer look that (somewhat) better illustrates the colors.
The other single page is a collection of photos from July of 2014. The chipboard embellishments came in a pack of goodies that Amy gave me as a gift when I arrived at the crop!
The two double-page layouts showcase photos from our Texas Spring Break vacation last year. For both of these layouts, I cut pieces from the memorabilia/brochures I had saved from the trip. I still need to add journaling to the Battleship Texas layout, but I want to wait until I put together a few more layouts from this trip so I can decide which stories to tell on which layouts.
Have you scrapped any layouts yet this year?
Joining in today with Helena's meme - Snap - a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images. The set can be based on colour or shape or subject.
