♥♥♥
Open Masks0115SS and minimize.
Open paper 3. Duplicate and close original. Apply mask. Copy.
Open a new canvas, 700 x 700.
Paste your mask (just made from paper) as a new layer.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Copy and paste element 68 as a new layer and move low on your canvas.
Copy and paste element 57 as a new layer and re-size by 56% and move to the right of the tag.
Copy and paste element 63 as a new layer and move to the right of your tube.
Copy and paste elements 54 and 45 as new layers and re-size both by 50%. Cat goes to the left of tube at bottom and squirrel goes to

the left side of tag near the tent.
Copy and paste element 38 as a new layer and re-size by 50% and move to the right of your tube and place near bottom of tag.
Copy and paste element 36 as a new layer and re-size by 50% and move to the left side of tag and behind the edge of tent. Duplicate

Copy and paste element 44 as a new layer, re-size by 50% and place behind the tool box. Duplicate and re-size by 84%. Move over slightly.

Make sure all your layers have a drop shadow. Do any final adjustments at this time.

In layers palette, find your tent layer. Merge down all layers one by one starting with the layer behind your tent (don't include the
tent). You should be starting with your tree layer.
Now X-out that merged layer.
Click on tent layer to highlight. Right click and merge all visible.
Now un-hide your bottom layer. You will have two layers.

Select your Crop tool and Snap crop rectangle to: Merged Opaque
Now to animate.

Go to Selections, select all.
Go to Edit and copy the bottom layer. Paste as a new animation in Animation Shop.
Hold your Ctrl key down and repeatedly hit letter L on your keyboard for a total of 16 frames.
You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.
Open SimoneAni-GirlScoutGrass
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, copy.

Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, select all.
Go to Edit, make sure Propagate Paste is selected.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

Position on your tag and click into place. I placed mine more to the left hand side of tag, because I knew the tent would just cover up anything I placed on the right side.

Back in PSP, highlight top layer and copy.
Paste as new animation in AS.
Go to Edit, copy.
Activate your tag.
Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

You can now add SimoneAni-GirlScoutBugs.
You will notice it's REALLY really small. See my screen shot.
I placed it on my squirels tail.

Play and save.
Don't forget to add your name.
You can see my name tutorial HERE.

To save:
Go to File, Save as, enter the name of your file and select the folder to save to.
Now click on Customize:
Under COLORS TAB:
Number of colors: 255 Colors
Create palette by: OPTIMIZED OCTREE
Reduce colors by: Error Diffusion
Under OPTIMIZATIONS TAB:
set a check mark beside the second, third and forth choices. UN-check the 1st and last.
Under PARTIAL TRANSPARENCY:
check Convert pixels less than 96
Yes, blend with this color: change to white #FFFFFF
Click OK. Click Next, next, next, next.
Play your animation.
At times your animation may or will come out terrible. Optimization in Animation Shop is not the greatest.
You can play around will your settings, especially under the Tab: Optimization. I change this setting at times from anywhere

between 70 and 100.
Some people add a white background.  To add background, go to Animation: Animation Properties, select Opaque and change color to white.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial,
