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 newest PTU kit- Sweet Tooth.
You can find this kit at Scrap-A-Licious now.

Tube: I'm using the beautiful artwork of Verymany. 
You can find this tube at Pics For Design.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Template 69 from Kandi at Kandi Kissez Tagz .
You can find it here.
