Tea Time to Reflect

On the 18th of July MME announced their second monthly challenge, Halfway There. It's all about July being the middle of the year.
This year has been SO jam packed for our family that I had to sit and think for a minute on how I'd interpret that theme. This meant a cup of tea,
and an idea was born.
What if every time I sat down for a hot beverage I had a sweet memory at my fingertips? What if my favorite people could sit down with me every time I had a cuppa? What if I could package up all those good feelings and send them to Mama, whom I see about once every 2 years?
What if I took that empty tea box
and covered it in paper
instead of tossing it in the bin?

What if I had a bunch of photos with people too small to really see well?
What if I trimmed those photos and made "tea bags" for brewing reflections?
What if I had so much MME product that the variety of
papers, trims, and embellishments was endless?
It seemed like such a good plan
that I did exactly that
with photos from the first half of this year.
Hope Mama, likes it!
