Please be sure to use the proper copyright info included in the tubes TOU. ~Talk About Friendship PTU scrapkit which you can get from Sweet Cravings Scraps HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used WSL mask298 which you can get HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Dr, Carbfred and Mufferaw. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656).
