Sweet Sketch Wednesday 157

Phew! I made it! Summer is here. This week was bitter sweet. Sweet in that I am now officially on vacation until mid August, but bitter in that a dear family friend has suffered a loss. After many years of battling cancer, her husband passed on Wednesday. I made this for her and her two young sons. Many thoughts and prayers are being sent their way!

I am submitting this to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I used Bugaboo Stamps' image. I LOVE their images!

Here's the sketch:
