Here is my sample for today's set called Lesson Learned.  I had some fun with that stack of books.  I stamped it a couple of times, color them with primary colors and then punched them out.  Next, I sandwiched my sentiment between the books (like book ends) and threaded some taffeta ribbon through an oversized eyelet.  I finished off my ribbon with a burlap twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head to Tangii's blog now.
