[http://forums.mymemories.com/?forum=466294]  Everyone who posts a layout in this month's thread will receive from me the prize I have posted with this month's challenge.  To make it extra sweet, your layout can be about anything I've shown you in ANY of my A to Z challenges!  Now, on to today's idea.

H is for ...

His and Hers!

I made my collection, His and Hers, to celebrate both men and women.  It works especially well with heritage photos.  Enjoy these sample layouts by Judith, Kathy, Liz, Lori, and Yvonne.

Documenting you life with ADB Designs



The 4th of July celebrations are a month past now and back to school will be upon us soon. It is time to get those summer celebrations scrapped and my AMERICANA  collection is super for that.  Americana is a "folk art" styled collection with lots of elements and papers to create many layouts.

Q77 (prompt)

Scrap some of your summer celebration memories. Did you enjoy firecrackers or sparklers? Were there parades and picnics in your home town? Have you taken a vacation during the 4th of July holiday time in order to be in a "special place" for the celebrations?

To help you get started -- I have a Page Starter Gift for you, a Quick Page made from Americana.  Just click on the preview to grab it in my store.

Here are the previews and some layouts from my Creative Team to provide some inspiration to get you started.

Documenting you life blog series 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.


This week I am featuring my newest Heritage Scrappers collection called: Prairie Home.  I was born and grew up in Kansas; I have lived in Nebraska since 1989. The two states are VERY similar in geography and climate. My mother was born in Kansas and has roots there back to the homesteading days. My father grew up in Kansas and considered himself a “Kansas boy”. Many of your ancestors would have migrated through Kansas and Nebraska on either the Santa Fe trail or the Oregon trail and probably a few of them called Kansas or Nebraska their final destination and went no further.  

Q76

Scrap about where your family calls home. This might be the current generation or past ones. Ideas: migration patterns, those who stayed vs. those who left, building homes, your home town, famous landmarks near your home. These are just a few ideas, I am sure you can also think of ways to celebrate family and home on your pages.

Here is a Page Starter Gift from the Prairie Home collection to help you get scrapping:


Here are some previews of the collection and some wonderful layouts from my Creative Team to help you with scrap lift ideas:

 


 


 

 



Happy Scrapping,
Diane
