Documenting Your Life Series with ADB Designs!

Question/Prompt #6: Documenting Your Life with Diane, 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 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/Prompt 6:

Write about your mother; be sure to include her full name, birth date, birth place, parents, etc. What are some memories you have of your mother?
(note: “mother” may be step-mother, foster-mother, adopted mother, family friend. Your definition of mother.)

My mother’s birthday is July 16th. She would have been 95.  I miss her every day, but I was blessed to have her and my father living with my husband and I the last 3 years of her life.  It can be difficult being a caregiver to an aging parent.  As many of you know, every day you are on call and “little issues” become “big issues” very quickly. But, the blessings far exceed the stresses.

This wonderful layout celebrates both Mother and Father and provides a wealth of information that will be treasured by the next generations. The creator used my "Softly" collection for this layout. "Softly" is available in my store here. 

The layout of another digi friend uses my brand new "Telling Your Story Mini & Extras". I love her journaling too. Telling Your Story is on sale right now - grab it in my store here

Let me know how you are doing and if you have any questions. I love to read your thoughts about this series. Just comment below.
