I created this tut in PSPX4 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP.  Not much to do in
this tutorial but your imagination

You will need:
A tube (preferably a sitting tube) & a close up tube - I used one of ©Zlata tubes.
You need to be a registered member of PicsForDesigns
to purchase her tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrapkit called 'Muted Love' from Wicked Princess Scraps
Template #25 from Scrapity Scraps & More
Mask #108 from Gems Taggin Scraps
Font I used is called 'Pea Mels' In Between' from Fonts For Peas
