JUMBO Personalized Crossword Puzzle

I'm not sure what it is with me and things being JUMBO.... but I just think they are much cooler.

This was a previous idea from Love Actually that Melanie from Sugar Doodle used, adapted and shared with her readers. I love it!

There was an idea on "Love Actually" for making personalized crossword puzzles. I loved the idea!!! With my hubby's birthday quickly approaching, I knew it would be a fun thing to do. I came up with many questions myself but I also invited other family members to contribute questions. It was fun to see what they came up with!

There are several free crossword programs online but I used one of the two mentioned on "Love Actually". Click here for the one I used.

Once I completed the puzzle, I saved it to a memory stick and took it to my local Fed-Ex Kinkos and enlarged it (DON'T go around 5:30 when the Fed-Ex guy is picking up all the packages that need to be shipped and you have to wait forever!!! Just a tip to reduce your stress ....)

You can make your crossword puzzle as large as you want. (I used my editing program to add a title to the crossword puzzle but you could also just write it by hand.)

Hello? How cool is she? Thanks for the inspiration, Melanie!

Ugh! I SO LOVE THIS! My hubby just had his 30th birthday last September, this would have been a FABULOUS idea. Well, guess I'll reserve it for our one year wedding anniversary. See if he remembers all the cool things we did during our first official year as a wedded couple!
