This Tutorial was written on May 18th, 2012 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis
You must purchase a license to use his work and can do so HERE

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using a part of the birthday collab at SATC, this is Bibi's Collection's part
It was a freebie if you spent a certain amount but, you can still buy this and there are plenty of goodies in this collab
You can find this collab HERE
