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

The Reason

For this tutorial I used the Holiday Shimmer Kit from Vicki at Gemini Creationz which can be found HERE or HERE
Vix Mask 303 (in my Quick Links)
The Art of Suzanne Wolcott which can be found HERE

To begin pick your background paper and resize it to 60%

Open a blank canvas 800x800

Paste Your background paper in the center of this as a new layer.

Open Garland and resize 65%

Use this to frame your background layer

Open Swirl tree and place as a new layer, you may want to adjust the size or width of this. I made mine a tad more narrow, and moved it over to the right side.

Decorate the tree as you wish, I had to resize everything for that to about 20% and I applied drop shadows 2,2,100, 2, black to each element.

Open the Misteltoe and place at the top middle of your frame.

Add your tube as well as any wording and copyrights that you wish,

Save tag as a .png file so as your background is transparent. Ü
