♥♥♥

Open a new image 700 x 700 transparent.

Copy and paste lockers on the left side of tag.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and re-size by 70%.
Position in center of tag.

Copy and paste desk1 as a new layer and re-size by 85%. Mirror and position mid tag on the right side.

Move this layer down to bottom.

Copy and paste bag element as a new layer and re-size by 55%. Position at bottom of tag on the right side.

Copy and paste paper 6 as a new layer and send to bottom.

On your blank Raster layer ( should be the very bottom layer) go to Selections, select all.
Go to Image, Crop to Selection.

Activate your paper layer again. Apply Mask 114. Go to Layers, New Mask Layer, from Image.
Merge mask group in the layers palette.

Activate your tube layer in the layers palette.

Copy and paste ribbon1 as a new layer and re-size by 55%. Move to lower right hand side of tag.

Copy and paste ribbon2 as a new layer and re-size by 60%. Move to lower left hand side of tag.

On the board element, using your Selection tool, set to rectangle and feather of zero, surround the white portion.
Copy and paste the tube close-up. Go to Selections, invert and delete.
Duplicate the close up.
On bottom layer add gaussian blur of 3 and change blend mode to Multiply.
On top layer change blend mode to either screen or soft light, whichever you like best.

Activate your top layer.

Copy and paste sparkles2 as a new layer and position on bottom half of tag.

Add any other elements you like.

Add drop shadow to all layers.

Re-size your canvas (all layers checked) by 85%.

Merge all top layers down up to and including your tube. So all the elements including the desk, books, globe, ribbons, etc.
That will be your top layer.
You bottom layer will be the mask, the lockers, the board and the close-up layers. So merge those together.

To animate:

Making sure your bottom merged layer is selected,
Go to Selections, select all.
Go to Edit and copy. 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 21 frames.
You can watch the count on the lower right hand side of your screen in AS.

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

Go back to PSP now and highlight (activate) your tube (top) layer and copy.

Go to Edit, copy.

Go to Edit, Paste, paste into selected frames.

Play and 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 92
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.
