Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
and unintentional.
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.

Please do not share this or place on another website!!

* Scrapkit nurse sugar, it's a payed kit by wicked princess and you can get it aussie scraps
* Tube of your choice, I used a tube from the kit but you can use whatever tube you have of course. It's a freebie cookie from Lisa, you can download her here
* Mask in layers from Vinnie Pearce, this is a freebie from the shop here. You need to register to download but it's worth it! I used the mask and the layers as a template so no need to place it in your maskfolder.
* Font of choice, I used Arial for the small words on the clipboard and a fancy curly font for my name.
* Filter/ Eyecandy 4000/Gradient Glow (optional)

Remember to save often :-) Here we go, it's a quicky
Have fun!!
