For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Tony Tzanoukakis, which you need a license to use.  
This tube is a preview of tubes that are coming soon to Tony's store. At the time of this 
tutorial this tube was not yet in the store, but it will be there within a day or two of this 
tutorial being posted.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  the matching scrap kit called Witch Broom'n by BLT Dezines,
it will be out as soon as the tube is released at Tony's store.

Font of choice, I am using Zombified

Plugins: No outside plugins

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 frame 1, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 70%
Click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
Open paper 11, resize to 800 x 800 pixels,
copy and paste as a new layer, just above the white background layer
click delete on your keyboard.

Open the haunted house, copy and paste as a new layer under the frame layer
resize 60% arrange in the frame, click delete on your keyboard & deselect

Open the tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 35%, arrange on the left
