O is for Optical ......

Letter O
...is this weeks 17th letter chosen for the Alpha challenge
over at
I chose the word
from my Dictionary
I'm having a painful bout of sciatica at the moment,
so finding it difficult to do much arting :(
Luckily there are no twists to the challenge this week....
So it has to be a quick and simple one for this week.
I've used one of my smallest cubbies (only 2 . 5 cm by 4 . 5 cm!!)  in my Printers tray
I filled it with my distressed dictionary paper
vintage image of a little girl wearing her glasses
and a vintage optical lens.
Off to take a peek now
 to see what everyone else is doing with the  letter 'O'.
Thanks for peeking!
