Documenting Your Life with ADB Designs!




This is your story.  Do it YOUR way.  I write in my journal and scrap pages inspired by my journal entries. Two of my CT journal directly on their scrapbook pages and don't keep a separate paper journal. Others keep only a paper or computer journal and are waiting to create the scrapbook pages at a later date. There is no wrong way to do this, just pick up pen or mouse and DO IT. You can join me at any time with this series. You can scrap just the questions/prompts that inspire you, or all of them. You can scrap from the current question and go forward, or you can start at question 1 and move through them in order. 

Each post (every other week) I will share the current question/prompt and layouts created by myself, my creative team or scrapbooking friends.  

Note about sharing layouts from Cole:
We would LOVE for you to share YOUR layout's with us! Just create a 600x600 px jpg layout and email it to Cole npeak@storyrock.com subject line D.Y.L Layout!   With your permission, I will post it to the MyMemories BLOG DYL Series (right here), Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.  Along with your layout, please do include the question/prompt number and the name of the My Memories designer(s) and the name of their product(s) you used.  If you would like to post it directly to our MyMemories Facebook wall please click HERE. You can also post your layouts in the MyMemories Forum HERE.

Question 23

School from the teenage perspective …
Did you have a favorite teacher/coach/important adult in Jr. High or High School? How did this person influence you?  Sometimes the "important adult" doesn't have any idea how much they affect the people around them. 

This lovely layout could have journaling and a title that states the influence of the grandmothers on these two lovely granddaughters. You can tell in their faces how much they value their grandmother.  Faye used my Blue Skies Collection to create this layout. 

The Blue Skies collection is my Special Value Sale for June. Here is LINK

Month by Month blog series by Albums to Remember

Here is my post for May:

My name is Barb and I design under the name Albums to Remember Designs. The Month by Month scrapbooking blog series is here to help motivate you to do at least one page a month. I’ll give you some ideas for photos, show you some sample pages and give you some ideas for photos for the coming month so you can plan ahead.  

Last month I gave you the following photo ideas for May:

Mother’s Day - Here in Canada we celebrate Mother’s Day. If you do too make sure to take some photos of your mom. If your mother is no longer alive you can document an old photo and journal about the things you miss about her or the lessons she taught you.


Sample created with Mother’s Love:




Baseball/Soccer  - Our season starts late April or early May. I know soccer is starting soon and I am sure there are several other outdoor sports to take photos of.

Here is a fun set of words that works for so many sports pages, called Sports Words.


Recitals/Concerts - May is the month many lessons wrap up and everyone is showing off their amazing talents at year end recitals. It’s also a great time to catch an outdoor concert. Take photos and tell us about it!
Here is a fun kit to highlight the musical talent in your family, kit is called Music in Me.





Planting - It is still usually still too cold to plant but I know many of you live further south so it’s prime time to plant a garden or start yard work. Why not take some before pictures when you finish planting or before/after photos of your yard. It’s always fun to document progress. Later on in summer you can take a similar photo to see how far things have come.

Here are a few layout ideas to highlight your yard work/planting photos. Kit is called Yard Work.








Getting ready for June -

End of school photos - June is the beginning of summer break for many, take some photos of your kids last day of school (if you have kids).

Father’s Day - do you have a special memory of your dad? Take some photos or dig some photos up and scan them into your computer so you can create a layout.

Swimming/Cooling Off - Do you swim at the pool, lake, pond? Let’s see your favorite place to hang out and cool off.

Enjoy your scrapbooking this month. I look forward to seeing your pages. Please feel free to post them in the forum under Albums to Remember Challenges for May.

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry - T Post



Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and I'm back with another episode of From A to Z.  My goal is to give you a new idea with each letter so that you'll never be at a loss as to what to scrap or how to make your pages look amazing. Luckily for me, I have a brilliant Creative Team, and the inspiration layouts I use in this series were made by the talented ladies on my team.

I'm hoping you'll see some things in my A to Z Blog Series that you want to try!  If you do take any of these ideas and run with them, I'd love to see your layouts!  Please post them in the MyMemories forum in this month's A to Z Challenge thread HERE. Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

T is for ...

Trees

Whether for backgrounds or as the topic of your page, trees make beautiful additions to scrapped pages.

Using Lori Lane and Lori Lakeside (two collections I made in honor of two Loris on my team),

Kathy and Michelle scrapped these photos of trees.


 



Look how cute this page is by Kathy with June Scraps.


When talking about trees, I can't leave out the family tree.  Judith did a great job with her page using Family Branches.


Liz also used Family Branches for this creative page.



MY FAVORITE:

My favorite T collection is The Fam.  I just love the little family of owls, and this collection can be used for families of all kinds.  My example pages this time were made by Kathy, Kabra, and Yvonne.




I'm sure you have photos of trees.  If not, make it a goal to take some in the near future.  Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z.  :)

Question 22

School from the teenage perspective …
What was your favorite subject(s)? Why?

I have gathered some images that are not a direct scrapping of this question but are sure to give you some inspiration to do so.

Lella said that she always loved the outdoor, in school and as an adult, this layout using my 
Thunder Basin Saga collection speaks to that love eloquently.  


I am including this layout from Jules because it shows that you can have a beautiful layout without an image.  I can see lots of journaling on this page.  She used my collaboration with Feli, 
Remember When collection, to create this layout. 


Lastly, this layout from Dana is of a young man who absolutely had a favorite subject in school, animal husbandry. He was planning a life on the family ranch when these images were taken. Dana used my The Men In My Life Page Kit for this layout.

Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

S is for ...

Sisters

Photos of sisters together are always so sweet and can make a great layout even without journaling.  Here are some lovely examples of layouts my creative team has made using photos of sisters that they've taken.

Kathy uses photos of her beautiful granddaughters in her layouts.  Here are some using A Kind of Hush, Livi's Smile, Stephanie Court, and The Fam.







Judith used my Terry Ridge Collection and Monica scrapped her 3 daughters with Liz Landing.



MY FAVORITE:

My favorite S collection is Something Wicked.  It was a lot of fun to make and I love the layouts I've seen with it!  Here are 3 created by Kathy and Melly using Something Wicked.



So, find photos of sisters and get scrapping!  Again, I invite you to visit my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z.  :)
