My Daughter was born on Feb 14, 2010 and she is wonderfully healthy! Thank you for all the wonderful emails about everything. I just wanted to say that for right now since life has gotten so busy I am working mainly on tags and layouts. There will be the occasional tutorial but not as many as before. I am sorry if this causes any problems, but family comes first! I hope this finds all my followers doing well! Blessed Be! ~Lori

For this kit I used the work of Gina from KiKeKa Kits, Falling for you which can be purchashed HERE
Vix Mask 260 which can be downloaded HERE
Alien Skin Impact Gradiant Glow for download HERE

Open Paper 9 from the kit and apply the mask to it. Merge Visable, Drop Shadow 5,5,100,8, black.

Open Paper 10 and using the crop tool you need a 400x400 section. Copy.

Paste the Paper 10 layer under the frame.

Open Branch 5 from the elements and place at the bottom left, duplicate, mirror, Merge Down, Drop Shadow 5, 5, 14, 100, Black.

Open pine cone and place slightly off center,( you may wish to resize slightly) duplicate, mirror.

Open flower 5 and place between the pine cones, you may have to resize it for it to look right.Drop shadow with the same settings as the last time.

Inside the frame pick a few elements that you like and place them accordingly. I used the cattail, Mr. Turkey & pumpkin. All with the same drop shadow as before.

Add your needed copyrights.

Add all wording

Convert Wording layer to Raster by right clicking on the layer and convert to raster.

Effects>PlugIns> AS Impact>Gradiant Glow> Dark Aura... In the settigns for this you want to change the colors (Black and purple just do not look right here lol) For the first color I used the med nrown from Mr Turkeys feathers, Middle color is the next feather down, and the last is the next feather down. I used a glow radius of 8 and left everything else alone.

SAVE tag as either a .jpg (white background) or a .gif (for a transparent background).
