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.

The technology of genealogy / family history is evolving quickly. Doing a DNA test to discover more information about your ancestors was unheard of in the recent past but it is becoming a frequent step for the family historian now. An the results can be both illuminating and surprising.
When researching your family or simply listening to family members talk about the past, what information was an unexpected surprise for you?
One of my creative team members who is an avid genealogist has Native American roots in her tree and has been doing research on those ancestors for some time. Others of my acquaintances in the the Heritage Scrapping world have just found out they have Native American roots from doing DNA tests. It is for all of you that I created my latest collection Wind Song.
Here are some layouts from my CT using Wind Song. The collection is NOT limited to Heritage Scrappers; as you can see from the layouts there are wonderful layouts that feature current images.
The collection is on sale through May 21 in my store:
