the left just off center. Copy and paste Ele 12. place on the right arm of the scarecrow.
Copy and paste Ele 6. Move to the bottom of the frame. With the magic wand, click inside the
frame, selections, modify, expand by 6, invert. Start at the bottom with the paper, and hit
delete. Select the moon, hit delete, select the frame layer, hit delete. With the eraser,
select the right tree layer, erase the root, do the same to the left side too.
Selections, select none. The rest of the elements are on top of the frame unless directed to
place differently. 
Copy and paste Ele 15, using the pick tool, rotate a bit to the left
Don't forget your dropshadows. Copy and paste Ele 9, adjust to the right tree and "hang" it
from the tree.  copy and paste Ele 36. Place to the bottom right of frame.  Copy and paste

one behind the frame and paper layers to the left by the pumpkins and then to the right
behind the tombstone. I also added Ele 25. Duplicated 2 times and placed them on the bottom
layers, see sample for placement.
