Notice and TOU

Most of my tutorials are written using PTU art and scrapkits! That however should not stop you from trying them. I understand not everyone can buy scrapkits and/or art but there are tons of FTU artist and freebie scrapkits that you can use. I only write tutorials as a guide. What YOU do with them is up to your imagination
All Tutorials have been written in PSP 8. They are just a guideline on how to make a tag look a certain way and do not have to be followed word for word!
If you are a group manager please feel free to link to my tutorials but if you don't mind could you leave me a link to your group in my chatbox or you can email me
I love to see what people make using my tuts
Thank you.

Lets Get Started:
1). Open all supplies in PSP

2). On your template

*Because this tag is in memory of my Dad I decided to add the word art across the middle of the tag*

Sorry I Have Been MIA

I just wanted to leave a short note here to apologize for everyone for not doing more updating!
Things have been crazy busy in RL. Today is my 11th day in a row with no day off at work so I am just about exhausted. I am hoping with the 4 days I have off coming up I will be able to get some new tutorials and such written

Love and Hugs,
