Welcome to my first Tutorial!!!!!!

This tutorial was written on November 20, 2011 by Val aka LostAngel Graphics. The concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag/tut is pure coincidence. This was written for those with working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies Needed:
++Paint Shop Pro (I used 12 but any version should work)
++Jasc Animation Shop

++Scrap kit by Naughty Angel Creations called Frosted Pink Christmas which is PTU and can be found

++Mask of Choice or the WSL_Mask 341 that can be found

++ Tubes of choice or the one I used. I used the work of Keith Garvey which you can be found@ PTE  HERE Note you must have a valid license in order to use his work.

++Font of choice

++Plugins needed Vanderlee SnowFlake and Mura Meister Copies
