the magic wand, selections, expand by 8, and invert.  Paste paper 15 and hit delete.  Paste paper 3
and move to the bottom, to make it look like a cement floor. Hit delete.  Copy and paste jail cell

Now take your pen tool on width 3 and click the free hand button.  with black, draw 4 lines down and
one line diagonally as in the sample. Hide everything but the lines, and merge visible. Unhide 
everything and on the lines layer, duplicate 6 times, and adjust as in the sample.  To make it look
like someone is marking the amount of days they have been in jail.
Copy and paste the tube you are using for the inmate. Adjust behind the cell bars. Copy and paste
the wire fence, using the pick tool, rotate to the left and place in the middle behind the papers.
copy and paste the sparkles.  Duplicate and mirror.
Paste the crime tape, and move to the side of the frame.  Erase the roll to make it look like it is
going behind the frame.  See sample.  copy and paste money bag, move to the lower left corner of frame.
Copy and paste handcuff, mirror and place by money bag.  Remember to add your dropshadow to everthing.
Copy and paste the cop tube.  Now you can add any word art.  I used Markin' Time as the word art.
