* 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 X1, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using an awesome kit from 
She made 2 awesome Football Nut kits. I'm using 'Seattle'. 
You can find these kits exclusively at Thrifty Scraps.

Tube: I'm using the stunning artwork of Freya.
This is her new Cheerleader- Superbowl tube.
This tube comes with Seattle and Denver layers 
& also a grey scaled outfit to colorize to match your team.;)
You can find it here at AIL.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: Template0036 from me here.

Filters: Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Fonts: Fortuna Dot for the scoreboard
So Posh for the name
