For this tutorial you will need the following:

Scrap kit: PTU kit Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE

You must have a license to use this tube. 

Mask of choice

♥ Let's Get started! ♥
Open layer at 800x800 transparent background.
For the drop shadow on evertying I am using the following settings:
Verticle: 2, Horizontal: 2, Opacity: 46, Blur: 6, color black. (you use what ever you want)
Remember to save as you go.

(*Resize everything before you start copy and pasting)

Tornado (Resize 28%)
Yellow Bricks (resize 687%)
Yellow Brick Road (resize 60% Mirror)

Tube (if using the same tube resize 80%)

You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything! 
Copy and paste Paper 9, add your mask. Merge group.
copy and paste Frame 1. copy and paste paper 5, drag it below the frame layer.  With magic wand
click inside the frame, selections, modify, expand by 4, invert. Hit delete on the paper layer. 
Selections, select none.
Copy and paste the tube above the Frame layer. Add drop shadow. Position where you want it and 
then with the lasso tool, draw around the bottom of the tube to make it fit in the frame. Hit 
delete to delete the tube hanging over frame.
Now the easy part.  Just copy and paste the elements. Using the sample, arrange elements. Remember
to add your dropshadow as you go.
With the pick tool, adjust the mask layer to fit to the siggy if need be.  Same goes with any elements
if any look to large, just use the pick tool and make smaller.
Once you have it the way you want it, crop and resize.  I resized mine to 575. 
Now add your copy right and license info and your name. For the effect on the name, I added an inner
bevel on the following settings:
Bevel 3, width 23, Smoothness 59, Depth 18, Ambience -26, Shininess 15, Angle 45, Intensity 50,
and Elevation 50. 
I used Eyecandy 4000 Gradient Glow to put the white outline around the name. Add your dropshadow.
Merge visible and you are done!
Simple and easy.  I hope you had fun playing with this kit!
