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 X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using my PTU Love, Neverending kit.
You can find information on where to find it here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Lady Mishka.
This is an exclusive tube at Pics For Design.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Kristin - TD - VDayTemp5 2013 
from Toxic Desirez, here
