Sunshine Sleeper- SOUS reveal July 22nd

I'm in absolute shock at how fast this summer is flying by.. its already at the end July.. But, with the passing weeks also comes the happy things, like reveal days over at SOUS and I'm extra excited since the sketches we are doing this month, are ones that I actually made myself... GO ME!!..LOL 

so, here is my take on this weeks sketch.

There I am.. We went to Spain on vacay when I was about 4 yrs old and I found this photo in my grandmothers things.. My moms told me, that I was taking my daily nap at pool side at the hotel we were staying at.. so glad my mom snapped this photo... and yes, that photo is really yellow, but its cause its so old..LOL  <--can't beleive those words came out of my mouth..LOL

here is my sketch:
