**This Tutorial was written By Me On March 27, 2014
*This tutorial is my creation only*
Any resemblance to other tutorials is not intended 
Use my tutorial as a guide to make your tag your own 

This Tutorial is intended for those that have a working knowledge of PSP

*Supplies Needed*
PSP ( I Use 3X but should work with other versions)
Font of choice : I am using Dandelion In The Spring ~ HERE
Big Mask #1 by Vix ~ HERE
Dropshadow of choice

*Plugins Used*
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow For Name (Optional)

*Tube/s of Choice* 
I am using the Awesome art of Suzanne Woolcott
Sadly she is not selling tubes any longer
But her other art can be viewed  ~ HERE
This is a PTU tube and you must have a license to use.

*Scrapkit Of Choice* 
I am using the Beautiful PTU Scrapkit Ladybug Garden By Amy Marie's Scraps
And can be found  ~ HERE
Thank you Amy Marie for making such amazing kits for us to create with.

*Cluster Set*
And the matching PTU Cluster set by Chillipepper Spiced

*NOTES*
Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated 
And see my finished tag for placement


Ok this will be a fairly quick tutorial but just as fun I hope
We will be using a ready made cluster and adding some goodies from the matching kit, so let your imagination run wild, thats always fun :)
