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 Ninaste (Summer Beauty) which you need a license to use. 
This tube has several color choice layers and you can use her with or without the hat and glasses.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Aquatic Beauty by Amy Marie Kits

Font of choice, I am using 2Peas Melissa

Mask: becky mask 23

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 a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

open element 140 copy and paste as a new layer resize 150%
take your Freehand Selection tool set on point to point, click on one area along the frame, then go over slightly,
click again, and keep moving slightly over and clicking until you are back to the beginning point,
once you get back to the beginning point, double click
selections, invert
open paper 2 copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the frame
click delete on your keyboard, leave selected

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 75%
erase where the legs hang over the bottom, deselect

 Now for the elements

 element 47 duplicate a few times, flip and move around, then once you get it how you like it, merge them all together and take your eraser tool and erase the edges to clean the edges up a bit
arrange along the bottom of the frame under the frame layer

element 27 resize  % arrange around the bottom of the frame,
element 41 resize  45% arrange on the bottom left duplicate, arrange on the right
element 34 resize  55% arrange behind rocks
element 52 resize  45% arrange to the right
element 62resize  45% arrange by the green leaves & rocks
element 37 resize  45% arrange on bottom right

 add paper 10 above the white background
apply your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
