I saw the idea on Funky Time and downloaded

the Heavenly Soap image HERE!

Then I used a pretty watercolor background from my friend Karen at a Scrapbook of Inspiration !

Looked on the Graphic’s Fairy blog to get the Swan image

You are too cute. I love the soap idea and saved the post to use the links later and make some Easter soaps for the daughters-in-law. Thanks for the great idea it does look like fun.

You make me grin. It does look very pretty.

Thank you soooo much for the soap images..I couldn't find the swan one but got the rest and will use them the next time I make some soap. I do use the melt and pour soap (I am kind of lazy) and I did try and shave and melt Dial soap but couldn't get it to melt...have you ever tried it?

Cindy said...

Sweet idea...makes soaps so special!

KarenHarveyCox said...

What a compliment that you used one of my images. I just adore what you did. I wish I had been there too. I just love getting lost in a project that requires assembling papers and treasures. I just love what you did. Thank you for mentioning my image. Please feel free to take any image that you like from my blog. If there is one you cannot download just e-mail me.

I bet you feel so satisfied with the results.
Karen

P.S. Now don't let anyone use that soap tee hee.

Diane Mars said...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my puzzle and looking for the answer to a Million Dollar Question... I really think you are right we are all feeling the strain of this sluggish economy and our pocketbooks are very tight. Gas prices alone are enough to make us feel the pain ouch! I sure do think your project today is just darling what a great idea! oxox, Diane

Stacey said...

Hi Diane! Thanks for leaving me the sweet note yesterday. I have been so busy at school there just hasn't been time to post. Must confess that I've been stalking everyone and not leaving notes. bad...bad...bad.

Your soap project is adorable. Little touches like that make such a difference in the look of a room. The tin is beautiful the way you fixed it up. Great idea!

Anna said...

Fun post, Diane. Your tin is the perfect holder for everything, it looks great.

Wow!!! Your pictures are fabulous and so are your handcrafts.

I am so ... well, I would say jealous, but I really am not "crafty" - so I will just say, I surely do admire your talent.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Really cute idea!

Brambleberry Cottage said...

Well, look at you! Who would have imagined that "soap" could look so lovely. And you displayed your handicraft beautifully! ;)
