My Rose Leaf Trellis Shawl is finished

And blocked.
I've never blocked anything before but I'm so glad I did.  The shawl became lacier and lighter with the blocking.  It looks beautiful.  I gave it to Megan for her prom this weekend.  She modelled her dress for me with the shawl and it was gorgeous!  I'll have to get some photos from her Mum. In the meantime here's a couple I took of the shawl at home before I gave it away.

Play all day

A quick layout I did this weekend for my LSS Unforgettable Memories. The photos are from my recent trip to Victoria over spring break.  I was lucky enough to be there at the same time as my niece and nephews.  They had a lot of fun on the beach playing with Kona; Grandma and Grandads pup.

I love the new Bazzill dotty cardstock.  I sprayed Maya Mist over some scrolly lace paper I had for the background.  The patterned paper is Harmonie and the chipboard accents are Crate Paper. I cut one of Prima's felt branches in two pieces.

Rose Leaf Trellis Shawl

My Rose Leaf Trellis Shawl is coming along beautifully.  I have almost 20" completed now.  55" to go.

It will look so much better once it's been blocked.  The bottom will be even and wavy.  The lace design will be even more open and delicate.

I can't wait to get it finished.  I've found about a hundred other patterns I'd like to knit.  It's too bad it's such a time consuming hobby.

Lots of spraying of Glimmer Mist.  I just got the large Glimmer Screen so had to try it out.
Lots of Prima embellished with bling.
Lots of border punched scraps.
I really like how this layout came together. 
Or maybe it's the adorable characters in the photos that I'm loving.

My kidlets were so cute way back when.
