Default SBVC120 - Puzzling Idea

I love doing crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles.

Today's challenge is to do use the Crossword idea or use puzzle pieces on your page.

Jigsaw Puzzle: I happen to own the Coluzzle Puzzle Template. I wanted to make a collage out of some odds & ends pictures.

My Puzzle Sample - Busch Gardens

Here is an idea you could use: Crossword Puzzle Page
Make the whole page look like a giant crossword puzzle. The one I saw was 10 squares across and 11 squares down drawn with a black pen. The black squares were paper. The black squares were on: Row 1 #4; R 2 - #3,9; R3 - #3,10; R4 - #2, 10; R5 - # 3, 4, 5, 7; R6 - # 5, 8; R7 - #1, 9, 10; R8 - #2, 6; R9 - #3; R10 - #8 and R 11 - #5, 10.
Starting on the 6th square of the first row the word "Friends" was written down. On the 4th row the word forever was written between the 2 black squares so that it intersected with the 'e' in the word "friends". Here is a sketch to give you a better idea. (Polly G.)
You could use other titles. You could put the photos of friends or small wallet size photos exchanged by many students in the small white squares or those with dark backgrounds in place of the black squares. You could make the squares bigger and have less squares.

My crossword Sample: Kyle & Nick

This is such a cute idea. I like your sample. Now all I need is time. DGDs are here this weekend--not much free play time for Grandma!

I'll have to look for the punch that I know I have somewhere that punches puzzle pieces. Or maybe I'll go through my digi files cause I seem to remember a mask that will do puzzle pieces. me thinking now. Great challenge.
