PTU- Time For Spring

* 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 the beautiful Spring Fresh kit
from Tasha's Playground. This is an exclusive kit
for The PSP Project & was made to compliment a tube 
by KiwiFireStorm. You can find this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the amazing artwork of KiwiFireStorm.
You can find more awesome artwork at The PSP Project.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: PDS_Time for Spring Template002 from PolkaDot Scraps.
You can find the template here.
* Leave her some lovin' for the template. ;) 

Mask: wags - glitter 2 from the Creative Misfits.
You can find this pack of masks, here.
* Show some love when downloading. ;)

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Grandma's Garden

Drop shadow: 2 4 35 4, black.
