Brand New Friends - update - woo hoo! Winner of the August 18 Sketch Challenge at BoBunny!

This layout is about a wonderful little boy named Andrii who spent four weeks with my brother's family this summer. He lives in an orphanage in the Ukraine and came here through a mission group. He is such a sweet boy and we all fell in love with him. My brother and his wife hope to be able to keep contact with him and to help him, and maybe even bring him here again, when he is released from the orphanage at age 16. 

I entered the layout in a sketch challenge at BoBunny.
Sketch is by Rita Shimniok.
I used BoBunny's "Flower Child" line.
Floss is DMC #743; Brads are Paper Wishes;
letters are Cosmo Cricket tiny type
and BoBunny "Calypso"
