    They will love it - no doubt about it! And if it gives pink bubbles, all the better.

    So gutted I didn't get a chance to soap for this challenge and probably won't for Dec either (another exam is looming!!).

    I've just voted - tough decision to make though!!

    my cut bars

    Here are the cut bars of my drop/skewer. My daughter and I worked on the design and I think it was too fluid. I know better for next time.

    I wish I would have gelled this one because the colors are not a deep as I was hoping.

    Micas were Mocha and a gold from the Nuture mystery sample pack.

    I'm so bummed I never had a chance to make this month's challenge soap. November has been an oddly crazy month for me. :crazy: I just looked through the entry thread and all the soaps are so beautiful! Everyone did such a fantastic job. :thumbup: In the rules it says the winner will be announced today (11/30/2015) so I quickly voted. I hope I got in in time but if not, my apologies to all. Great work everyone and I'm looking forward to seeing the voting results! :clap:

    Thanks to everyone that voted and congrats to Songwind and Saponista. I definitely think these challenges are helping me spread my wings and keep from getting in a rut.

    Thank you everyone for voting for me. I'm having a tough month and this really cheered me up! :) and well done songwind and judiraz, fantastic entries. I loved everyone's though, this technique produced so many different designs. Each entry is so unique. Also a huge Thank you to lionprincess for organising it, especially with all the troubles you had trying to do it from your phone.
