I created this tutorial with PSPX1 but I'm
sure it can be done in any version of PSP.
You will need to be an experienced PSPer to do
this tutorial, but my steps are easy enough to follow.
This is a lengthy tutorial with lots of screen shots
No scrap kit used in this tutorial, just your imagination.

You will need:
A tube - I used one of Keith Garvey lovely tubes
You need to be a registered member of PSPTubes Emporium (PTE)
to purchase Keiths tubes, but any tube will do.
