For this tutorial you will need the following:

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 850 x 850 with a white background
Open element 2 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, invert
open paper 6, paste above the white background, click delete on your keyboard.
Open the tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 50%
arrange in the frame, erase the bits that hang out where you don't want them.
Add the following elements:
element 14 resize 25%
element 15 resize 35%
element 29 resize 45% erase the parts that go over her hand
element 27, resize 45%

Element 3, arrange on left bottom, duplicate, mirror
copy & paste paper just above the white background, add your mask
