Remember to save as you go.

Rocket 1 (resize 36%)
Shooting star (Do Not resize)
Sparkles (do Not resize)
Sparkling stars (reszie 51%)
Tube (if using the same resize 70%)
Tube close up (same as above tube)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything!
copy and paste paper 4, add your mask, copy and paste sparkles, copy and paste porthole.
Copy and paste the chicken wire, adjusting to the left top side as in sample.
copy and paste paper 13 drag below the porthole and erase everything on the outside edge.
your paper should only be seen from the center of the Porthole. Copy and paste close up
tube, erasing everything on the outside of the porthole. I chaged the blend mode to
Luminance (Legacy) and dropped opacity to 59.  Copy and paste sparkling stars and adjust to
the top of the porthole just above the close up tube layer. Erase anything that hangs out of
the porthole. Duplicate, image, flip, and drag to bottom like in the sample.  Copy and paste
the rocket, using your pick tool, rotate to the left, don't forget to add your dropshadow as
you go. copy and paste planet 1 and 2 adjusting inside the porthole. copy and paste shooting
star, erase anything sticking out of the porthole.
Copy and paste the clock, using the pick tool, rotate to the right slightly. Move to the
right side under paper 13 layer.  copy and paste the luggage, place above the clock, using
the eraser tool, erase any of the clock that sticks out the bottom of the luggage.
copy and paste the divider moving to the bottom of the luggage layer. Still adding the
dropshadow as you go. Add your tube and add dropshadow. Position to lower left side.
copy and paste the captains wheel, adjusting to the lower left side, under the paper 13
layer.  copy and paste the gears 2 above the wheel and adjust to lower bottom left corner.
Crop and resize.  I resized mine to 500 pixels.  Make sure the DPI
is at 72. If you choose, you can add the word art as seen in the sample, or make your own.
You do not have to add the word art if you do not choose to.
Add your name. I used inner bevel to give the name a cool effect on these settings:
Bevel 2 (semi circle), width 31 smoothness 35, depth 16, ambience -27, shininess 46
Angle 135, intensity 30, elevation 88.light color white.
I added a gradient glow to the name on the following settings:
Basic Tab: Glow width 3, Soft corners 25%, Overall opacity 100%
color Tab: using white, drag a second tab to 1/2 accross so there are 2 black tabs.
Add your copyrights for the tube.  Don't forget to add your license number
if using a PTU tube.
Merge visible and save! you're done! Simple and easy. 
I would love to see what you made!
