Happy T-iversary!

Elizabeth & Bleubeard are celebrating the one-year anniversary of their weekly linkup tea party, "T Stands for Tuesday"--hooray!  As part of the festivities, Elizabeth has invited us all to link up with our favorite T-Day post from the past year.  My favorite post is from August of 2013, and it's actually the very first T-Day post I ever wrote.  At that time I was on the design team for a scrapbook challenge blog called Scrap for Help, and our challenge for the month was for participants to use tea bags in their art.  For my DT sample, I showed how I went from this...


...to this...

After my post went live, I was looking through my blog reader and came across Elizabeth's weekly call for tea/beverage-related posts.  Serendipity!  


After that first week I was hooked.  Now I enjoy the weekly society of other tea and coffee lovers.  I have to miss a week here and there, due to real life commitments, but I do link up most weeks, and I always enjoy hearing all the news from the group.  I'm happy to be celebrating the one-year anniversary with everyone.  Here's to another great year!

I can see why you were picked to be on the design team. Your scrapbook pages are always STUNNING. And I'm glad that teabag post brought you to us, because you always bring a smile to my face when I see what you have posted.

Thanks for sharing this T-iversary with us and sharing your lovely teabag inspired scrapbook page.

Hello Denise, I didn't realize we both found Elizabeth about that same time. I was hooked right away too and still am. I do remember this post and enjoyed it again. Almost shared my first post too but couldn't resist the one I chose instead.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.
