It's that easy, find all the words from the word list and e-mail a link to the completed word search to: Download the image and either print it out, complete it, and scan it in or use an image editor to highlight the found words and save a copy. Do not send the completed wordsearch as an attachment. I prefer that you upload the image into an image hosting service such as PhotoBucket and send me a link. If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the forum.
