Memories are Made of This

Scrap kit of choice - I am using the lovely "A Thousand Miles" kit by Teresa's Scraps which is available at Cotton Candy Kreations and Heavenly Taggerz
Tube of choice - I am using the gorgeous work of Zindy Nielsen which can be purchased from her store
WSL_Mask33 by Chelle which is available from her blog
Font of choice - I am using American Scribe
~ Step 1 ~
Open a new 600 x 600 blank canvas flood-filled white
Paste Frame05 as new layer
Resize by 70%
Grab your Freehand Tool and draw around the Frame
Add new raster layer
Layers / Arrange / Move Down
Open Paper01
Edit / Copy
On working canvas, Paste into Selection
Paste Doodle02 as new layer
Resize by 45%
Position in the lower left
Paste Doodle03 as new layer
Resize by 40%
Position in the upper right
Once satisfied with positioning
Layers / Merge / Merge Down, then
Layers / Arrange / Send to Bottom
You should now have something like this:

~ Step 2 ~
Activate top layer
Paste Frame07 as new layer

~ Step 3 ~
Paste your tube as a new layer

Duplicate, then
Layers / Arrange / Move Up
So now you should have a tube layer on top of your frame
With your Freehand Tool draw around the bottom part of the tube:

Press delete
Your tube now looks like it is behind the ribbon and protruding out of the frame
Activate your Background layer
Paste Paper09 as new layer
Layers / New mask Layer / From Image
Locate WSL_Mask33

Resize by 90%
Select your Preset Shape Tool on Ellipse
Foreground - #000000
Background - null
Draw out out circle around your tag
Select your Text Tool and font
Choose a colour from your tag
Foreground - null
Background - #35190f (colour I used)
On the curve type out "Memories are Made of This" or anything you like
In your Layer Palette open your Vector Layer and hide the Ellipse
Convert to raster layer
Add a slight drop shadow:
H & V - 1
Opacity - 20
Blur - 5.00
Colour - #000000
In a similar font type your name, adding any extra effects you wish
Finally, add your © copyright, licence and watermark
Then save as a GIF or JPG and you're done!
