~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open tub
Add to your canvas
Add a drop shadow

Open your tube and add her to your canvas
Resize and reposition so that it looks like she's sitting on the edge of the tube
Duplicate once you're happy with this
On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Open mirror frame
Add to your canvas below the tub
Resize down by 81%
position to the left of the tub
sort of like my tag
Add a drop shadow

Open pp7
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 4
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate this paper layer
Filter → Xero → Fritillary
With the following settings:
Granularity – 5
Aggression – 16
Tesselation – 70
Variation - 109
Change the blend mode to overlay

Open pp10
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

In between the paper frame background layers and the mirror frame
Add your tube once more
I flipped mine horizontally
position to your liking
I sort of did it to look like a reflection in a mirror
Erase any that is outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

print 2 (no drop shadow)
print 1 (no drop shadow)
ribbon 1
ribbon 1
bottle 4
candles 1
flower 3
rubber ducky
flower 2
flower 1
bow 1
bow 4

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with your result save to your liking and you're done!

Now, if you're wanting to animate we're going to continue on!

Open up your animations

Select all of your frames of both of them and click alt + G
This just selects them all as a group
On the bubbles one, if you're using the animation without the shadow go ahead and add the shadow you used on your tag here.

Now add the bubbles to your tag
Resize and reposition as you'd like to.
Mine I just slightly bigger than the mirror frame
It is positioned just above this frame as well
Close all of the frames except for the very first frame once you're happy with the size and position

Now add the flame
Rotate is Counter Clockwise 90 degrees
Have this just above your candle 1 layer
Resize and reposition so it looks like it's on the wick of one of the candles
(I did the one on the left first since it's just slightly bigger of the two)
Once you're happy with how that looks
Duplicate this and move it over to the other wick and resize it so it's just a bit smaller
Hide all of the frame except for the first one of each

Now open up your animation window
have it set to go forever and the delay set to .1
Add a new layer and hide the first layer and unhide the second layer of each of them
Add a new layer and hide the second layer and unhide the third layer of each of them
You're going to continue this until you have all of the layers done.

For the flames, there is not as many as there is bubbles, just revere the frames and go back down once you're to the top.

Once all the bubbles are done I didn't like how it just sort of ended and started over so I duplicated all the frames and of the new ones I reversed the animation

Press play to watch it go.

If you're happy with the result save as a .gif and you're done!
