Smile Alphabet mounting...

I just purchased my first alpha set (big deal) and as I was cutting it out yesterday was thinking about mounting. I know the stickers all pretty much keep the letters in abc order, but has anyone ever gone outside the box and mounted for usage? I cut all my letters first and laid them on the blocks then got to thinking about the words I'd most often use them for like family, vacation, our, girls, together, camping, wedding, anniversary and all our family names. I decided I didn't want to have two letters on the same block that would commonly be one after the other. I was going to mount the z on the back of the a, but changed my mind when I got to Elizabeth's name on my list. So, this is how I ended up mounting them just in case anyone else would like to know (Keep in mind that the big deal alpha uses the b as q, the d as p and the n as u.)
a/k b/v/q c/y d/t/p e/j f/s g/m h/r i/& n/l/u z/w o/x

I cut the labels apart to correctly label the blocks and then added by hand the letters q, p and u on the opposite end of the block so I'd remember when it was time to stamp. I read quite a lot of the stamping forums even if I don't jump in and don't recall having seen anyone mention mounting out of order so wanted to share my adventure!

Wow, you put a lot of thought into that. It makes a lot of sense especially since it is custom mounted for your needs. I am afraid it would confuse me cause I ain't as smart as you. LOL. I found it very interesting though so thanks for sharing.
