You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
For this tag, it is really just copy and pasting the elements where you want them. I always
start at the bottom and work my way up mostly. also if something just isn't the right size,
you can resize how you see fit, mine is only an example, so be creative!
paste paper 20, paste the frame above paper layer. Click inside the frame with your magic
wand tool, selections, modify, expand by 5, selections, invert. On the paper layer hit
delete on your keyboard.
Copy and paste paper 9, copy and paste window. Click inside each square in the window, selections
modify, expand by 4, selections, invert. On the paper layer click delete on the keyboard.
Copy and paste the larger moon and stars. Erase anything hanging over the edge of the frame.
Add drop shadows to everything as you go.
copy and paste the red balloon, move to the right side of window, copy and paste lamp, move
to the side of the balloon. (see sample for placement)
Copy and paste the mittens. copy and paste paper 11, copy and paste smaller frame, adjust
above paper 11. As before, click in the frame, selections, modify by 4, selections, invert,
on the paper layer, hit delete on your keyboard. Don't forget to be adding your dropshadow to
your elements as you go. Duplicate paper and frame, For both the paper and the frame, image,
free rotate, to the right 90%. copy and paste the moon and cow as shown in the example and
arrange in the horizontal frame. copy and paste the bear and rocking chair. Move them into
the frame that is verticle.
Now at this point I just started adding elements to make it look like the book Goodnight Moon.
Once you have it the way you want it, You can do the following steps or just add your name and be done.
With the dropper tool, pick up the dark yellow color from the moon and with the font
Childrenplay type out GoodNight Moon.
Effects, plug ins, Eye candy 4000, gradient glow.
Now add your gradient glow on these settings:
Glow width 3.00
Soft Corners 25
Overall Opacity 100
Draw only outside selection checked.
Under color tab, use black for gradient glow. Drag one slider half way across the bar.
Click ok. Add your dropshadow. Using your dropper tool again pick up the teal color.
With the font Larissa, add your name and use the same gradient glow settings as above.
using the yellow color again and the font Pea Times New Camileon, type out any sayings you
want to add. Again use the same gradient glow settings as above. Add dropshadow to everything
if you haven't already.
Re-sizing the siggy...
I resized mine to 500 pixels. Add your tag info.
Save and you are done! Easy Peasy!
I would love to see what you made!

GoodNight Moon
By: Margaret Wise Brown

In the great green room
There was a telephone
And a red balloon
And a picture of --
The cow jumping over the moon
And there were three little bears sitting on chairs
And two little kittens And a pair of Mittens
And a little toyhouse And a young mouse
And a comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush
And a quiet old lady who was wispering "hush"
Goodnight room Goodnight moon
Goodnight cow jumping over the moon
Goodnight light and the red balloon
Goodnight bears Goodnight chairs
Goodnight kittens and goodnight mittens
Goodnight clocks and goodnight socks
Goodnight littel house and goodnight mouse
Goodnight comb and goodnight brush
Goodnight nobody Goodnight mush
And goodnight to the old lady whispering "hush"
Goodnight stars Goodnight air
Goodnight noises everywhere.

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and the story at the end...Now Goodnight!
