Project Life - keep going!

I had a little bit of a struggle this week.  We had just gotten back from vacation and I was in the midst of party planning for Nandini's first birthday party.

I had a lot of different things going on and wasn't sure where to go with it.  I decided to keep it really simple.  I only printed out twenty photos out of thousands from our trip.  I just added a few striking pictures and a little bit of journaling.

Also, it rained all weekend so we stayed indoors and did NOTHING.  Haha, that made my week a little easier to scrap.

We played a little colors in our house on the night of chotti Holi.  The next day was Purim (and Holi) so Avinash dressed up as a dragon for pre-school.  I'm always amazed every year that these two super fun holidays fall on the same day.  The new flags from Elle's studio look so vibrant in person.  These is from the bright and vintage set.

 A bit cut from a breakfast menu and a luggage tag.

I turned the flash on outside and somehow got that picture in the upper left.  I really loved it, so I had to include it.  The badge is Ormolu flair.
I picked up a stationery set from target with those blue and yellow chevron cards.  Why does Target always have the best stuff???  It's like they read my mind. 
I added a few Adventures stickers to the breakfast menu turned card. Avinash cried "I don't want to leave this place" over and over as we waited for the ferry to leave Lanaii. 
A volcano picture from our last night.  I can't get enough of these.  Just some stamps I did at the park ranger station, a crate border sticker and Amy Tangerine daybook tab, I just learned from her on twitter that these are self adhesive.  Ooops, now I know!
The grocery bags at Central Market are very cool right now.  I knew I had to cut some pieces up and add it to the album.  Those kishu oranges really were amazing.  Again, a card from Target with a bit of turquoise spotted washi tape.  

Nothing amazing, but I'm glad I got it done.  I have a page of 4x4 squares that I am filling up with vacation photos and slowly working on a few layouts here and there.  I feel my mojo slipping away again this week, but I have photos already printed out I just need to go pick them up!

Linked up with The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kit I am using is the Clementine kit.   Thank you so much to everyone in this wonderful community.  I love all the feedback and looking at everything people do each week.  It definitely keeps me motivated.  And, please, link me up to any of your inspiring pages this week as well in the comments!
