PTU Tutorial - Soft Dreams

This tutorial was written by me on 21st April 2013 any resemblance to other tutorials is a coincidence.
Scrapkit is a gorgeous PTU kit called Soft Dreams by Chichi.
Tube of choice - I'm using the gorgeous Sexy Alice by Ellie Milk. You must have  licence to use this tube. You can purchase it at PFD.
Font International Palms.
*Lets Get Started*
Open a new canvas 650x650
Copy Frame2_CD_SoftDreamsTS - Paste As New Layer.
Image - Resize 90% smartsize.
Move down the canvas a bit.
Activate the Magic Wand Tool - Selections - Modify - Expand - 5
Selections - Invert 
Copy a paper of choice ( I used Paper21_CD_SoftDreamsTS) - Paste As New Layer
Press the small delete key on your keyboard.
Selections - Select None.
Layers Arrange  Move Down.

Activate the frame layer.
Copy Flowers_CD_SoftDreamsTS - Paste As New Layer.
Move down so it's sitting at the bottom of the frame.

Copy Balloons_CD_SoftDreamsTS - Paste As New Layer.
Move to the right of the frame.

I erased some of the butterflies to make it look neater but that's up to you.

Add any drop shadow you like to the frame and elements.

If you want to make it look like she's sitting inside the frame follow these steps.

Move the duplicate tube down so that it is above the background layer.
Activate the background layer.
Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.
Selections - Invert.
Press delete on your keyboard.
Selections - Select None.

Activate the original tube layer.
Eraser tool - erase the bottom of the tube.
Voilà - it should now looks like she is sitting in the frame.
