Month LOTW

I had a great idea to host a LOTW swap of all the months.. for those of you who don't know, LOTW stands for Letter Of The Word... and for the swap, each person creates one letter and sends that letter to the hostess, who in turn organizes the letters into a complete word and sends the complete word back to each participant.

I thought it would be a great way to either scrapbook a page for each month or make a calendar as a Christmas gift.

Well this swap turned into a NIGHTMARE!! With so many spots, I had a few flakers (people who sign up and then don't complete the swaps)... I had to make a whole bunch of letters so that those who were participating got back complete words. Let's just say.. I don't want to do another one of these for a long time.

I do think they turned out very cool... and because I ended up with so many spots.. I think I will make a calendar and for 2010 I will scrap one page to highlight each month for both boys' albums.

Here are the pictures... I'll try to get them in month order, but no guarantees!!! So it looks like I'm going to have to put these in several posts or else it is going to be one very LONG post!!
............. to be continued................

Those did turn out great! I remember this swap, you and Megan had to work so hard filling in those spots! I recommended you two on the "recognize your hostess" thread, because of all the effort you made, making sure we all got full words back!

Great words...I just finished two LOTW swaps & they were a little of a headache. I guess I didn't mind too much b/c now I have another one opened! I'm my own nightmare.
