going to attempt to overlay flagstone on top of cement pad. For the cement/mortar is it just bags of Portland and water or do I mix sand water and a bag or Portland??? Never done this before and following your video religiously.

i would not use portland cement..i have layed thousands of feet of flagstone over concrete pads..make sure pad is super clean.
use type s mortar only..use i bucket of cement with 2 1/2 buckets of sand approx 1/2 bucket water add as needed to make like pancake batter for a strong mix.
