The Welcome Wagon at GingerScraps & the Inspiration Challenge

Are you familiar with the Welcome Wagon at GingerScraps?  It's a part of the forum, opened to registered users only, where the GingerScraps Designers give away free mini-kits.  I picked up this kit from Unforgettable Moments this weekend:
Available in the GingerScraps forum!
I used it to make this layout for the Inspiration challenge at GingerScraps this month, which is being hosted by Unforgettable Moments. The challenge was to be inspired by a cliche.  I chose "the Bee's Knees", which means the absolute best, the height of excellence, the cat's pajamas.  I focused it on my adorable husband, of course:
Remember the Moment by Unforgettable Moments (the Welcome Wagon freebie)
Individual elements:
Flat ribbons from Thoughts of You by Unforgettable Moments
String from Coffee shop with Friends by Unforgettable Moments (the newsletter freebie)

I had to throw in some string and ribbons from other kits, well... because, I needed strings and ribbons. The string came from a newsletter freebie that Unforgettable Moments sent out last week.  Isn't she awesome?

While we are talking about how awesome Unforgettable Moments is, I should mention that the participation prize for the Inspiration Challenge this month is a free mini-kit that hasn't even been released yet!  How awesome it that? Here's a sneak peek:
The challenge ends on the last day of this month; you have a little over a week to complete it.  So, run on over to GingerScraps, register in the forum and participate in the challenge.  There are a million good cliches, I'm sure you can think of something! As a matter of fact, I had an entire series of cliches that I was considering using with pictures of their literal meaning such as:
  • Airing dirty laundry–I'm sure I have or could get a picture of dirty laundry
  • All that glitters is not gold–I love platinum and silver jewelry and just took photos of the Hope Diamond in it's temporary platinum setting
  • The whole enchilada–my favorite food
  • As easy as falling off a log–recently got great photos of my dogs crossing a log on a hike
  • It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog–We have a 4.5 pound chihuahua, need I say more?
