Oh Alice ... CHAPTER 34 :: The Mad Tea Party

`And ever since that,' the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, `he won't do a thing I ask! It's always six o'clock now.'
A bright idea came into Alice's head. `Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?' she asked.
`Yes, that's it,' said the Hatter with a sigh: `it's always tea-time, and we've no time to wash the things between whiles.'
`Then you keep moving round, I suppose?' said Alice.
`Exactly so,' said the Hatter: `as the things get used up.'
`But what happens when you come to the beginning again?' Alice ventured to ask.
~Chapter 7, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Yippee... half the world is going into autumn now which is perfect for tea, for us here down under it's SPRING... still good for tea if you ask me!! :D

Your challenge this week is to explore things that could make up your tea-time activity. Use tea bag folding in the construction of your project. This is a great resource: Tea Bag Folding. Anything relating to time would pair perfectly with this challenge, but isn't a requirement! Show us your fab folding abilities, doing it Alice-style!

Check out the delectable samples from the Twisted Thirteen! See them on The Oh Alice blog!
Here is mine... when I googled tea bag folding I found a great video tutorial on making a tea bag folded butterfly so that is what I'd done! I used the gorgeous little "Country Anya" digi from The Greeting Farm for my card...
