This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

Broken Dreams, which is exclusive 
to PTE & is available now.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Gina King, which you can 
find at PTE, in the new releases.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license 
to do so & have purchased the tube.

at the Creative Misfits blog.
You can find it here.
Leave some love when downloading the template. ;)
