member of MyPSPTubes(MPT) to purchase them, but any tube will do.
Scrap kit called 'Taffy' from Baby Cakes Scraps

Font I used is called 'Brush Script MT'

Open up my TaffyTemplate - click SHIFT D to copy it. Delete the original
template. Delete my TOU layer. Make bottom layer active (white), go to IMAGE-

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer placing it over small circle. Like mine. Carefully erase any
of the tube that may be protruding out side the small circle. Give your tube the same drop shadow
as before.

Copy & paste the Destressed Ribbon from the scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers
unchecked. Move the ribbon below your tube layer. Carefully erase any of the ribbon protruding outside
the template. Give drop shadow.

Copy & paste the Floral Spray from the scrap kit as a new layer. Move to the left of the template. Carefully
erase any of the stems protruding out from template. Duplicate - IMAGE-MIRROR. Move these layers below the
ribbon layer.

Copy & paste one of the Butterflies from the scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 45% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
PLace where you like - duplicate - IMAGE-MIRROR. Give each butterfly the drop shadow.

Add your name & correct copyright. Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Open
eyes up. Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Make your merged image active, click on blue bar at top -
