After two days of thought, I finally got the idea of what might work for this challenge. Put sheets of paper between the pages of books to keep the sheets separated. Cut a short piece of the same yellow paper and shaped the “nine” which I then placed between the paper sheets
Had one flash to the front and one to the to the side towards the back.

Thanks so much, you guys. For the smashing score, the votes, faves… and the ribbon!!

Perhaps more time in the barn is what you need afterall, 21.gif pointandshoot.

I'm off to the barn to look for mules...

If I could do this with paper I'd spend more time in the kitchen and less time in the barn. Congratulations, Irene.

LOL! I love the stamp. He didn't use it the last couple of times and I thought he'd broken it, so it was nice seeing it again ;-)
