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.

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.
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:
