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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We are moving forward in time for a while now and will explore our memories as a teen or young adult…
Q18 Describe the area – city, small town, farm –where you spent most of your teen years. Remember to provide facts along with reminisces.
This question/prompt got the genealogists on my team thinking about how their ancestors might have answered ... what a great way to think about journaling from another person's perspective!
Connie used my new collection Ozark Mountain Home in creating TWO marvelous and very different layouts. She told me it was a thrill to be able to use family photos taken in the Ozarks of the past with this collection.
