Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental

You will need:

Font of choice – I used Bellbottom Laser. This is FTU, and can be found

Scrapkit by Angelaz Creationz called Bling in theNew Year. This is FTU found
This kit is full sized, so the elements and papers are quite large.

Tube of choice. I used Cheers by Keith Garvey. These tubes can be purchased through his store

Mask of choice – I used 0Mask046 LT.
I’m not sure where I got this mask, so I have supplied it. Please let me know if this is yours, and I will either remove, or supply credits.
