Crossword Puzzle anyone?

*this is my second post for the day, be sure to scroll down or click here to see the fabulous LO Debbie created using March's monthly kit and this month's sketch*

So ya know the other day when I had like 3 hours to spare on the challenge over at Lasting Memories? Well I am glad that I played along because look what I got
Lasting Memories

My LO was chosen, well me and 2 other ladies. I felt so honored. Thanks to all the fab products in March's kit the LO came together really well. So anywho, I decided to play along again, this week's challenge "You're the boss". So what did I do, I decided to try my hand at another mosaic LO. If any of you have been following for awhile you will recall the last one I made, I was so frustrated that I swore off ever making another. Well to make my life easier I headed to Michaels and bought a 1" punch, something I didn't have the last time around and I had to cut every single 1" square. Yeah I thought I was going to cry the last time I made one but I kept thinking how cool they looked. So this time I had the 1" punch and I had such a FUN time putting this together. I LOVE puzzles so this felt like I was putting together a puzzle and I will certainly be making another.
So all the pictures are of my oldest daughter, from birth to present. So that's it, what do ya think? I might make a little, well, it will be a 12x12 but when I say little I mean just a couple LO's in it and they will all be crossword style. Maybe one for each of the kids and one or two with all of us, The only thing that stinks is it uses a lot of photos. There are 100 spots to put pictures, of course if you use a bigger picture that helps but in this LO I still used about 40-50 photos. I am totally surprised I had that many of her that I hadn't scrapped already.

Anywho, I hope ya like.

Happy Crafting!!

Congratulations on your win last week. I loved your layout. This layout is fabulous. Mosaics are very tedious and this one is great. I love the crossword title too. Such a great layout. Thanks for playing along with at Lasting Memories.
