yes, it's time again . . .

for another installment of hot beverages!
(Does that sound goofy, or what?)

***If you're looking for the OWOH post,
keep scrolling . . . well, peruse this
first, and then scroll! ;)***

See if you can guess what the challenge
was for these pages:







Well, okay, the center layout doesn't
go with the challenge, but the other
two fit with the teabag template challenge
at Gingersnap Creations
. I'm contemplating
putting a quote inside each "tea bag." Two
of my favorite tea quotes (don't tell me you
don't have a favorite tea quote!) are:

If man has no tea in him,
he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty.
---Japanese Proverb

and

There is no trouble so great or grave that
cannot be diminished by a nice cup of tea.
---Bernard Paul Heroux

The center layout fits right in with Judy's
Red/White/Black challenge, as well.

I'm ready for a hot cuppa Earl Gray right about
now . . . or green jasmine . . . what's your
favorite tea?

***update***
The geisha layout was chosen as a Ginger Gem!
Thank you, Gingersnappers!
