    Sorry, didn't mean to be sneaky. I didn't have time to comment back when I voted.

    You all did so good in this challenge, I am super impressed with each and every one of you.
    I will do this again for sure, it was really fun (although it didn`t go the way I wanted. But seems we all struggled with that feeling, one way or the other...:crazy: )

    Wonder what the next challenge will be....

    This was to be my black and white challenge. I used a blend of rosemary, sweet orange, ylang ylang and cedar eos. I used equal parts. This blend faded right away. The scent very mild. However, when I used the soap the scent was stronger. So not sure why.

    It is CP with AC and TD.I used 1 tbs of AC and 2 tsp of TD in oil.

    I have crackling that I noticed and I saw some specks too. The specks are tiny, but they are there none the less. What I found odd was that the top of the soap was whiter then the rest. I had AC on the top and the TD batter seems as if it faded the AC.

    I hope I can do better with AC and TD together.

    Saponista already knows this but, I will not be voting in this one. I signed up but, I didn't enter. I've been a little involved on the back end and, I feel it is only fair. I thought many of the soaps were absolutely stunning. It was great to see what creativity people came up with using only 2 contrasting colors.

    All the best to each and every one - wether you made the challenge or not.
    It is just so nice to see how everyone is so supportive of eachother, that makes everyone a winner for sure!

    Here is to all of you (yeeees, that means you to - the one way in the back hiding behind the pottet plant!!)

    I really like your soap, Spice, it looks beautifull! The combination of the scent sounds really lovely too.
    (Is it wrong of me thinking your soap reminds me of delishious white chocolate and licorice? Nomnom... :mrgreen: )

    I'm pleased to announce the winners of this month's Black & White Challenge.

    I think that this might be the most entries we've had so far, so thanks to each and every one of you that entered and participated; without your efforts we wouldn't be able to have such an active community where we get to try out cool new things each month! :)

    So without further ado, and in order of voting numbers, congratulations go to

    1 - snappyllama
    2 - mintle
    3 - CaraBou
    3 - lionprincess00

    You'll notice we had a JOINT third place - so well done to everyone, and thanks again for entering. Even if you didn't post an entry, then thanks for participating in the thread. As MySoapyHeart said "It is just so nice to see how everyone is so supportive of each other, that makes everyone a winner for sure!"

    :clap: :clap: :clap:
