Something a little different this week!! Solve the puzzle and name the kit!

Last week's puzzle was rather interesting! I do read your comments and your emails. Though I must admit that I have also spent more time than I care to admit to cruising through all the pages of Connie's store on one site or another. So I can sympathize. I was even nice and chose recently released kits!! My layout was indeed created using Wedding Day. The elements that did not belong were flowers from Social Butterfly. That said... the randomizer indicates that last week's winner is Bekki!! Click here if you would like to refer back to last week's post. 

So this week we are going to try something a little different!!  I picked one of Connie's kits and ran it through this really cool Jigsaw Puzzle creator.  I have been very kind and set it to 25 pieces.  (But I was considering 49!)  I also removed the name of the kit so when you assemble the puzzle, the name won't be there!   All you need to do is email the name of the kit to coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)com.  Your answer should be sent by June 27th at 9:00 PM Eastern.

Caution!  The puzzle uses Flash and will not work on many mobile systems.  
Note: The area where you work the puzzle is actually larger than the puzzle.  If you have any questions about the puzzle, drop me an email.

A little Disney trivia. The renown "Partners" statue  located in the hub is nearly as iconic as Cinderella's Castle.  While Walt was alive, he was very adamant that he never wanted a statue of himself made and certainly not one that would be placed in any theme park. For decades after his death, his wife Lillian continued to honor Walt's wish.

Some 20 years after Walt's death,  fearful that Walt was being forgotten by a new generation that had not seen Walt on TV every week, it was decided that there needed to be a reminder in the park of the man who had started it all.  The Partners statue was unveiled in DisneyWorld in June, 1995. (It was first released in DisneyLand in 1993.)

It is said that at certain times of the day (which changes seasonally), the shadow cast by the Partner's statue creates a  Hidden Mickey.  As for the ring on Walt's right hand - it is an Irish Claddagh ring. He and Lillian bought the claddagh rings for each other on a trip to Ireland and both wore them daily.   It is not a Hidden Mickey.

Sweet trivia, Laramie! I love the puzzle featured this week as well. Something different. I hope some people jump in to play along this week.

Took me a bit to figure out how to work the puzzle - but once I did, it was fun & fairly easy. Thanks for the fun - I sent in my answer.
