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.
We took the day off yesterday to visit the pumpkin patch with some friends. It was super fun, and after going I'm not entirely sure I'd ever actually been to a pumpkin patch before. It was a wonderful fall day to spend out in the country looking for pumpkins and getting lost in hay mazes.
In other exciting news, I've decided its time to update my profile pic. It's a hard change, since I really like my old photo and maybe you won't know who I am any more? But that photo is about 3 years old now, so I think it's time...
One last exciting thing. I've been waiting to share next week's release with you for what feels like forever. It's tied to a very favorite thing of mine and I can hardly wait to show it all to you!
I'm so excited to introduce you to our fourth designer Sheila Reid! We've been keeping this a secret for a while, so it's great to finally be able to share this great news!
Here's a little introduction she wrote:
Hi, I'm Sheila Reid, a dedicated wife to an amazing husband of twenty years, a loving mother to four of the most wonderful children, all ranging from two and a half to nineteen years old, homeschool teacher to two of my children, and humble designer for three years now. I am originally from Mississippi, traveled all around in the military, lived in Japan for three years, and am now retiring here in good ole southern Alabama. I worked in many different school systems as a substitute teacher over the years and later as a teachers aide for the physically and mentally impaired before I became pregnant with my third child and decided to stay at home. I learned about digital scrapbooking around that time, eight years ago, and mostly used it for hybrid scrapbooking. Digital scrapbooking has certainly come a long way since then, and I started designing my own products about three years ago. Soon after, I stumbled across Pixel Scrapper and was hooked forever! This is my home away from home and while I have certainly learned so much from this site, I still have a LOT of learning and growing to do with all the wonderful community here at Pixel Scrapper:)
She's got a great Halloween Bundle out for you today, and I can't wait to see what she designs in the future.
You can find out more about Sheila from her links around the web:
Today is also the final day for our Happy Birthday Scavenger Hunt, and it's amazing to think that a year later we have three more great designers. I can't imagine where we'll be next year!
There are two final clues for the scavenger hunt today:
I just published this cute mini kit, which has a special place in my heart. If you're curious about the title, in Korea we frequented a pizza place called Mr. Pizza. The motto of this restaurant was "Love for Women." This is why Korea is a wonderful place to live.
I also made this new brush kit. Let me know how you like it, since it's my first one!
There are 2 days left to the scavenger hunt, and based on comments yesterday I think there are 4 parts still to be found. I have 2 clues for you today, and then 2 tomorrow, plus a BIG announcement.
- Find one clue today on the Graphic's Fairy FB page. If you aren't familiar with the Graphic's Fairy, you should be! She has great vintage images and great TOU.
- I'm going to go hide another piece in the forums. Good luck!
I've got TWO clues for you today, plus some hints if you haven't found the gallery clue yet.
1. The clue on Harper Finch's blog has NOT been posted. So you can't find it because it's not there. Stay tuned while we work through these technical difficulties.
2. If you haven't found the clue in the gallery, I'd suggest looking for a layout that looks like it was made with the bundle I'm giving away.
3. Today you can find a piece on the blog of our great designer Brooke!
4. You can also find a piece at Quality DigiScrap Freebies. Jen curates an impressive collection of freebies, and I'm honored that mine is there today!
There are a few more clues coming, plus we have a BIG announcement on Thursday!! Can you guess what it is? It's super exciting!!

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.
