This tutorial was written by me. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is pure coincidence. Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own. It was written in PSP 9 but should be compatible with any version of PSP.



I am using the artwork of Ellie_Milk. You need a license to use her tubes. You can buy this tube at PicsforDesign

I am using the PTU kit Season To Be Freezin by Amy(Gimptastic Scraps) . Visit her blog HERE to find where she sales her  kits and more.
