The lovely tube that I used is from 
Popeye Wong and is included in the Supplies.

The lovely Frame (SE_onthisday_frame.pspimage) comes from Melissa at Scrappy Expressions,
but she closed it and has a new Scrap Blog called
Sentimental Style.

Put the mask (1_TJK.jpg) in your PSP Mask folder and open the rest of the Supplies in PSP.

You can also use your own picture or photo with this tutorial.
