Project Life - Lizard

Follow my blog with bloglovin'

My project life post is a little late this week because went to Austin to start house hunting.  Still no luck yet, but we are keeping our fingers crossed.  The market is really tough out there right now.  Anyway, back to PL.

This week: We took a trip to Hill Country with my parents after Nandini's birthday.  My mom wanted to do the beach, but it is still too cold.  We played Holi again at home like three more times.  Avi had the week off of school for Passover, so we also played a lot at home.  So fun to see Avinash and Nandini playing together more and more.

What I used: Most of my cards are from a digital kit at One Story Down by Two More Days.  This kit is really graphic and fun.  I thought it paired well with my bright Holi color pictures. My go to embellishments are still thickers, wood veneers and enamel dots to add texture.

First side: Love that big picture of Nandini covered in color.  
And the photo of Avinash and Nana roasting s'mores.  I added text to it (font: Silverfake) and a make magic Ormolu flapper. Love those little things.
I also added a little digital stamp from Two More Days to our bluebells photo. 

I took a piece of cardstock outside on one of our Holi days and let it get covered in color.  I let it dry and then trimmed it down to fit in a pocket.  Then I wrapped it in clear OA washi tape so the powder wouldn't leak out all over the place.  I found the days of the week washi worked well with my "play Holi everyday" theme.
The black glitter thickers were added on top of the pocket.  I find that foam thickers are very sticky and adhere well to the plastic.
The little heart on the photo is a fabric flapper from BG.

Nandini keeps losing one shoe.  We call her little Cinderella, plus she loves helping me with laundry.  I think I have to make a full page about this as well.  I added a Chic tag Love note triangle to this TMD journaling card.

 I love that picture of Avinash and Nandini in front of the old barn.  As soon as I saw it at the hotel I knew it was perfect mini-photo shoot material.  I cut apart that little banner from some SC printables.  That cute little notebook paper bag is from Whisker. I tiny attached a little die cut and added the date to the photo (my only one of the spread I think).

I used an Amy Tangerine stamp on this journaling card.  How cute is the hand drawn chevron? I am so blown away by it. I added a MS label sticker to the picture of me.  It turned out a bit dark, but I still like it.  I layered an SC sundrifter wood veneer over a BG sticker

 Second side: Love that little story about Avinash's nature scavenger hunt at the hotel.  He spotted this lizard all on his own.  I thought the Trend thickers paired well with the photo and black striped card.

Love those Holi pictures where you can the color just scattered in the air.  I stamped white on kraft to make this sticker.  I added a cork arrow from SC and this BG button.  It looks really Indian I think.  

 The A is a coordinating TMD font.  I added it directly to the photo before printing. 

I cut this circle out from another TMD journaling card and stapled it on to the photo.  I could have added it on digitally, but I don't always plan ahead.  I just journaled right around it.

On a side note, in my Etsy shop I am offering free domestic shipping on all orders over $10 to celebrate spring, just type in RAINBOWS at checkout.  If you are international, email me and I can send you a slightly different code (kumar.niru at  Thank you everybody!
 Let me know if you have any questions. Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kits I am using are the Seafoam kit and Clementine kit, with multi-pack page protectors, and grid journaling cards.  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. Also, please include a link to your projects below so we can check them out too! 


  1. Love all the photos and how you used all the little embellishments to add to the story. Such great touches that just emphasize the story.

  2. Love your pages! Since I failed at Project 12, i wouldn't even attempt PL but I admire those that do!

  3. I love that you actually used cardstock that got covered in color from your Holi games, rather than just misting it. Nice thinking ahead :)

  4. Aww that pic of Nandini with the pink powder flying around is so cute! I love the family pic :) the background reminds me of Twilight & DDLJ!

  5. Wonderful pages. I love the bluebonnet pictures. I haven't seen any in the Dallas area yet. I couldn't even find seeds this year.
    Hope your house hunt starts going a little better.
