Sometimes I get a little stuck in my designing, and then I turn to the forums to help me out. This idea came right from there, so thanks everyone for helping with that inspiration! Hope this kit helps you scrap those special celebratory moments!
I also have a fun announcement for you today! We've started a little Creative Team at Pixel Scrapper! We're still getting things started and figuring out what it all means, but I do have some great layouts to share with you!
I really like the idea of a throwback day. I have, as I'm sure you do too, so many photos that's easy to forget about some old favorites. It's great to have a day dedicated to searching through the archive looking for a special moment. This photo is 3 years old and captures the last time I experienced autumn. A few days before we left Korea to begin our traveling adventure, we went with a friend to a national park to experience the fall colors in all their glory. It was a great way to honor our time in Korea and also to make an autumn memory to last the next three years.
Coincidentally, this moment is also what inspired my recent mini kit, Perfect Day.
Even before I started working on this bundle I was really excited about it, and nothing diminished once I started working on it, or even after I finished it. This whole thing came about because of a movie called Moonrise Kingdom. I saw it about a year ago, and ever since I've been a little obsessed. It's possibly my favorite movie ever.
Previous to seeing Moonrise Kingdom, I was slightly obsessed with Fantastic Mr. Fox. It turns out that these two movies were directed by the same person, so now it's safe to say I'm probably a little obsessed with Wes Anderson (The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tennebaums, Rushmore, etc).
His movies have a very strong visual theme that carries through pretty much all of them, which is part of the reason I love these movies.
I just love to look at them. It's a great combination of retro and prep.
Once obsessed I knew I would have to try and emulate it somehow in a bundle, and I hope I've managed to catch just a little of whatever it is that I love about those movies. Conveniently, even if you're not obsessed with Wes Anderson, I think this kit may still be useful with it's camping/scouting/fall flavors.
Disclaimer: If you're my mother and reading this post, I don't recommend that you watch Moonrise Kingdom. I'm pretty sure you'll find it ridiculous. Although, you may enjoy Fantastic Mr. Fox.

I love digital scrapbooking. I also love to read and bake cookies. Especially while drinking tea. I've lived around the world, and love to travel, which is usually the theme of most of my scrapping projects.
