Sun, Sand and Boogie Boards..... =)

          Hey it's Nikki for the Paper Nest Dolls.........So summer has finally arrived here on the beautiful West Coast, which means so does all the cute summery images...... as I said in my previous post, July is ALL ABOUT Owen. I decided to strictly focus on him this month as I don't do a lot of his images..... and he IS super cute.... so nothing could be more fitting for summer, then Boogie Board Owen. I also tried a new technique that I learned from the lovely blogger/creator Wendy from Sugar Pea Designs, you can find the tutorial here...
