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.
Scrapkit: I'm using an adorable FTU kit from Tasha's Playground
named Inspired By PinUp Toons.
It's part of the Fantastically Free Blog Train & you can find it here.
* Leave Tasha some love when snagging the kit. =)

& have purchased the tube.

Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Then add a drop shadow to both the tubes & frame.
