I can’t take all the credit for this design.  My son, Aiden, who is 7 years old drew this picture for me when I was frustrated with a design that was not working right.  When I saw the picture, I knew that his drawing would not only be a perfect fit for my, “Symbols of Life” series, but that it would be perfect for saving the best for last!
