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

Lullaby of Love

For this tutorial I used the Eternal Love kit from Tootypup which can be purchased HERE
The wonderful art of Keith Garvy called 'Rosebud' which can be purchased HERE
Alien Skin G radiant Glow which can be purchased HERE
Animation Shop

Open paper 6e

Place moon 1 in the top corner with a transparency of 70% and a drop shadow of 4, 4, 100. 10 black

Place Music notes 1 in the middle of your paper, cross wise, also with the same drop shadow

Place tube of choice on the right hand side around the middle with a drop shadow

Open Piano and place it over the tube to simulate her behind it.

Add ribon 1b to the side of the piano

Place candle 3 in different resizes across the piano

Place Ribbon 2 across the floor with butterfly 3 over the ribbon (drop shadow to both)

Add all copyright information

Add the text and names you have chosen and convert text layer to a raster layer

Alien Skin> G radiant Glow> Green Glow and change the settings to black with a radius of 14

Resize to 50% and Save tag here so as not to lose any of your work.

Open Animation Shop

Back on your tag go to picture tubes and you should have the flame tube that is included with most all versions of PSP, you are going to want to resize this to about 20. Play around till you have it how you want it.

Place a nice flame atop each candle, if you don't like the one you are given you can undo and replace it to get another one.

Copy Merged and Paste into Animation Shop as a new animation

Back in PSP Undo each of your flames, and this time resize to either 25 or 15 and repeate the flames. Copy merged and paste in Animation shop AFTER current frame

Back to PSP and repete above step. I did this for a total of 3 frames, you can do more or less as you would like.

Run your animation and save
