Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.
Please do not share this or place on another website!!
* Scrapkit lovely embrace by ASB . It's a FTU kit and you find it at the site I linked. I used the taggers size.
* A tube of your choice, I used one from Lix, I bought at CILM, it's now closed and you can buy her tubes at PTE now. Please don't use without a license!
* A font of choice, I used a Jellyka font, I love those fonts, they all are wonderful and free to use.
* Optional, Eyecandy/gradient glow.( I used it to glow the name but it's not necessary for the tut)
Remember to save often :-)
