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 PinUp Toons, which you need a license to use.
I got mine at CILM, but you can now find his work at CDO, this tube is Individual Tube 84-3
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Love Me by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using Pea Goldilocks
Mask: BeckyMask23 her masks are no longer available, if you
don't have it, use something similar
Plugins: No outside plugins
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.
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 21 copy and paste as a new layer resize 115%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 8 copy and paste as a new layer click delete on your keyboard & deselect
open 77 copy and paste as a new layer under the paper
Open the tube, copy and paste it, arrange it so she's in the center of the frame

mirror and arrange on left side of bottom heart
