* Scrapkit Teddy Love by Zee. It's a payed kit and you can buy it at Aussie Scrap Design
* Tube of your choice, I used the cute bears from the kit, colorized them :-) and I used a tube from AliceTerraneo bought at MPT, please don't use them without a license!
* Mask WSL Mask 84, you can find them here. Put the masks in your mask folder in your psp files.
* Preset shape, skbackground pattern12
* Fonts of choice, I used Austion powers font and you can find it here
* Brushes of choice or use mine
* Optional, Plugin eyecandy 400/Gradient glow
* My supplies here

Put the preset shape in your preset shapes folder in psp. Make sure you don't put it into your presets folder!!
Import the brushes into psp like this:
File/Import/Costum brush and find the brushes you need by click on open and search. Then click on the add all button and they are imported.

Remember to save often :-)
Have fun!!
