Icon Scrabble.com - Short Headline maker



Icon Scrabble is a really simple idea that might be an attractive way to highlight vocabulary.



You simply put in an 18 character word or phrase and then save. It will give you an attractive picture in "scrabble style" to display/keep. It would be great if they put an embed code there for us - I'll contact them and let them know.… Continue
