    Thank you! This was the first time I used embeds, so that was fun, and especially since they turned out the way I hoped they would. It was a real nail biter!

    Your soap is sweet! It looks like a ball of kittens all cuddled up together.

    @newbie Thanks for this August challenge! Getting a picture of something in my head is one thing. Figuring out how to make it in soap is another thing altogether. It’s a great way to learn.

    @Mobjack Bay your embeds turned out perfectly. This is such a beautiful soap, and a sweet memory of a perfect day with your son.

    @msunnerstood your soap is just lovely. Because you always do HP, I assume that is what this is. Your skill with HP is outstanding. And I remember you posting something when those kittens were born.

    Thank you so much! Yes, its HP. All of the kittens have been adopted into great families but I sure miss them. Mama cat was spayed and released so she is still around

    I love your entry too. Those colors meld so well together and the gentleness of the swirl. Beautiful

    All of the entries are terrific! I'm not going to make it on time this month. I poured my soap a little late and it's still too soft to get out of the mold. I loved the challenge and will post pics when I'm able to do the finish work any who. Good luck all, great soap designs! :thumbs:

    @MarnieSoapien There’s nothing like a blackberry cobbler made with the giant, sweet blackberries that grow so well in the PNW. Your soap and story bring back some good memories for me, too, of time spent on the Oregon coast picking blackberries. Your colors and swirls are very pretty.

    I'm late, I'm late for a very important date. Sorry! Survey is up and messages sent. I have to upgrade my phone from my current iPhone 5. I can't do anything on it.
