* Click for bigger

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 a FTU kit from Amy of 
Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts named Bostonian Strength.
You can find this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Freya Langford-Sidebottom.
This is a FTU tube & can be found on her Facebook page, here.
* Leave her a lot of love for this beautiful tube. 
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: 214mpm from Millie's PSP Madness.
You can find the template here.
