In Psp Open new layer 600x600, make sure it is on 72 DPI and trasparent is checked.
For the drop shadow on evertying I am using the following settings:
Verticle: 3, Horizontal: 3, Opacity: 70, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)
Open Fence Frame, copy, and paste as a new layer. Resize 82% make sure to uncheck all layers.
With the magic wand select inside the frame (make sure to get spaces between the fences too).
Select, modify, expand by 2. New raster layer, flood fill with gradient I used with these settings:
Dark Brown #563118, Dark Pink #fb4992, and Light pink #f4d6de. Click on gradient in your color
pallate click on edit and use these settings:
Dark pink should be in the middle at 50%, light pink outside of that sitting one to the right
at 24% amd 26%. the outside will be the dark brown will be at 2% and 98%. Save it and close. Make
angle at 38, repeats 0, invert checked. click ok.
Flood fill the new raster layer and drag under the fence frame. Add the texturizer effect (you don't
have to do this step. It just makes the background look like a canvas) With these settings:
Texture: Canvas, Scaling 100, and relief 4, light direction Top, invert unchecked. Click ok.

Now start adding your elements. Open the kit, select the window, the girl, any puppy, the brown staple,
bright pink bow, puppy love word art (I chose the M&M one), some greenery, and the medium color
pink flower spread. the grassy hill, and the pink flower plant. Resize them as needed. I resized
the window at 76%, the staple, puppy love word art, and the puppy at 40% and so on. Make the tag
your own. To create the look I have, copy the grassy hill and place behind the frame. Erase
antyhing that is outside of the frame. Copy and paste the window. Image, free rotate 12%. adjust
where you want it. Copy and paste the greenery and duplicate, and then mirror.
Position on each side of the frame. Copy and paste the staple duplicate and position them on
each side of the frame. refer back to the preview for placement. Copy and paste the plant
duplicate and position. Copy and paste flowers 3 and drag to the bottom, position to where
you can see it to the left side of the frame between the leafs. Duplicate and mirror.
Repostion if needed. Copy and paste the girl and the puppy. Mirror the puppy and postion to
the right and move the girl to the left. copy and paste the puppy love word art and move move down
in front of the fence. Add the bow. Resize and rotate 12%. Add your drop shadow to everything.
Add your copy right to the siggy. Now before you add your name, crop to remove excess canvas.
Now with the same gradient as above, add your name, effects, plug-ins, eye candy 4000, glass, on these settings:
