You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything! 
Ok to make this easy, we are going to do all the papers first, so you are going to do these next steps 
the same for each step until I say other wise.  
Select the Pink rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, copy and paste paper 7
hit delete on the key board, delete pink rectangle, add dropshadow. 
Do the same with blue glitter bar and copy and paste paper 13.
Again follow the steps above with Black rectangle and copy and paste paper 15
Follow the steps above with Pink Bar, copy and paste paper 16.
Select the smoke'n pink insert and follow the steps above, copy and paste paper 12.
Ok now go to the bottom layer and copy and paste paper 12 again and add your mask. Right click on the
mask in the layer palette and merge group. Using your pick took, adust so the mask is just visible
behind the template.
Now select the photos, with your magic wand, click in the left one, selections, invert. Now copy and 
paste paper 9, hit delete, selection, select none.  copy and paste balloon 4, add drop shadow, copy 
and paste corset 1, add dropshadow, with the pick tool, adjust so it sits in the photo frame. Back on 
the paper 9 layer, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert and on the corset layer hit delete.
select the balloon, and hit delete again.  Now your corset and balloon should look like it is inside the
photo. Follow the same steps for the next 2 photos, putting paper 2 and corset 3 in the middle photo
and paper 6 and corset 2 in the last photo.  See sample for placement.
Now we just need to copy and paste the remaining elements, follow the sample for placement.
Remember to add your dropshadow as you go.
copy and paste your tube.  Adjust so she apears to be sitting on the word art if using the same tube
as I am, if not, place your tube where she looks good!  Almost done now! 
Crop and resize, I resized mine to 545. Add your name. If you want the same effect as I have, then
go to effects, 3D effects, inner bevel on these settings:
Width: 20
Smoothness: 17
Depth: 20
Ambience: 0
Shininess: 0
color: White
Angle: 42
Intensity: 47

Add the copyright info, any licenses numbers and merge visible
Save and you're done! Simple and easy.
