NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written August 25, 2016.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.  I am using Souldesigner's Sexy Toriya.  You can purchase her here.)

-- scrap kit of choice.  I'm using the kit Vicki Ann by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me, which you can get here.)

-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Bevel Boss.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- font of choice.  I am using Nouradilla.

1.  Select a frame from your kit.  Duplicate, close original and save the copy as your new canvas.

2.  Select two papers from your kit.  Paste them under your frame.  Click your magic wand on your frame layer, selections > modify > expand by 6.  Choose a paper and hit delete key.

3.  Apply the mask to your second paper.  Merge group.

4.  Paste in your tube as the top layer.  Resize as needed and apply drop shadow, then position where preferred.

5.  Time for some elements.   Numbers/names apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Any directions for placement of elements are optional - you can follow them or or place where preferred.  Remember to apply Jazzy's basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:
