USA Lolly

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 at Beehive Studio, which you need a license to use. 
The tube I am using out of this pack of tubes is USA Lolly. There are 3 different tubes in this pack and each one has several layers with different options on their clothing.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, July Celebrations by Tiny Turtle design.
This kit was made to match all of the 4th of July tubes at Beehive Studios. You can use it with them or any other 4th of July tube you might have.

Font of choice, I am using Peanut Butter Cookies

Mask: Dangerously Delicious Designz Patriotic Mask 4

Plugins: No outside plugins used
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 95 copy and paste as a new layer
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 12 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, deselect

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 55% move slightly right

Now add the following
element 81 resize  35% arrange on bottom left
element 20 resize  25% arrange on bottom left
element 12 resize  25% arrange above the cakes

element 46 resize  80% arrange across the bottom below the cakes layers,
