"O" Yep, that's my letter! An ABC Christmas book page

One particularly wonderful blog surfing day I came across a post by Kim at ArtJoyStuff about a Holiday ABC book she was a part of and that they needed a few more letters covered.  I contacted her and was put in touch with the wonderful woman that is coordinating this fabulous project.  After a few e-mails here and there I selected the letter O and got started.

 The goal of this project is to represent the holiday season with our letter.  We needed to prominently display our letter on our page.  I decided to cut out an almost 2" letter O paint it Old Gold and add some glitter to it.  I also printed out the Orchestra music to O Christmas Tree and have a bunch of Organic fibers on the front page in various shades.

Open, the present on the front.
Over/On Top Of, flip over the page which is on top of the other page.
Orange, Orchid, old rose and oyster are the colors I used on the background paper.

I have Otterhounds and Ocicats singing (oral) O Christmas Tree.
And to finish off that page I attached an Ornament and a fabulous 3D star (available in my Etsy shop).

On the back we needed to include a list of the words that we have represented.  I mounted all of my pages on a sheet of Dictionary paper of course it's the letter O. 

This was a wonderful project to work on and I can't wait to see what all the other wonderful pages look like.  Now I am off to the mailbox to send mine on it's way. 

Yes, we know it's after Christmas but what's the fun in rushing such a wonderful project like this? 

 I hope you enjoy my page.
