The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge, Letter O

The letter of the moment is O.  There are some amazing entries for this letter check out the challenge and the other entries HERE.  I'm not doing  a great job of playing catch up there are still a few past letters I'm missing, but sunny weather keeps calling me to the great outdoors.  Hopefully as the darker nights descend I'll  get a few more done.  So what does the letter O hold for me?  Something I would NEVER study, I come out in a rash just thinking about it!!

OIKOLOGY: the study or science of housekeeping.

I'm finding it harder and harder to get a good crisp stamped image on my page as the previous layers create a thick bulky book, but for this page 'distressed' stamping works ok. 

Stamps are an old set, I think they are from TANDO Stamps.

The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge, Letter D

I'm loving this alpha dictionary challenge over at the Craft Barn.  It's proving very good for my vocabulary!! The challenge and other entries can be found here. So week 16 and the challenge is letter D.  I checked out a few words and was delighted to find a word relating to Trees, especially as missed last weeks letter due to holidays.
 Dendrology - the study of Trees

The base page has been painted with gold and silver paints.  The head stencil is my own and the tree stencil is by Crafters Workshop.

BFF - Best Friends FOREVER

I stumbled across this fabby sketch challenge over at the Me and Mine blog. I'm not a very confident multi photo scrapper but thought I'd give it a go.  Here's my take on the sketch:
