Can you find the keys? =P

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working 
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using my own PTU kit- Sleepwalking Past Hope.
You can find this kit at Scrap-A-Licious or ART.

Tube: I'm using the stunning artwork of Screaming Demons. 
You can find this tube only at SATC.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

You can find it here on her template blog.
