Kinda blurry, but we can still see your pretty afghan!

Kelly, if you use Flickr for your photos, you don't need to resize them. Flickr has already resized them for you. Just pull up your photo page, click the "Share" button, and then select the size you want to share.
Your first picture is a bit blurry; but still clear enough for us to see your layout. This looks really nice; I also like the border that you added. How did you do the last row?
I did a single crochet round once with each color than I used one of my stash yarns with a darker shade of purple and I did 7sc, 5dc shell, skip 5, 7sc and repeated that configuration until finished with a slip stitch into the corner. I think the border was needed. One row of sc around just wasn't enough for me.
