Like Honey to a Bee FTU

:Supplies Needed: 

PSP X3 but any version will work
FTU scrap kit Sunny Dayz by Kittz Kreationz found here
Template by Mellisaz Creationz found here
Tube of choice I am using the artwork of Suzanne Woolcott and you need a license for her work here
Mask 211 by Insatiable Dreams found here
Font I used for my name is Honey Script
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15

Let's Begin!
Open up template, then duplicate the template by holding down the Shift + D, close out the original
Delete the copyright layer
Flood fill the bottom layer with white
Okay now we are going to color the font of the title, "Like Honey to a bee" and to do that we are going to go to Selections-Select All- Float- Defloat- then on your layers palette, right click add new raster layer above the text, then flood fill with color #ebd329. Then go to Selections-Float-Defloat-Modify-Expand by 2 and on your layers palette again right click add new raster layer but below the yellow text and flood fill with color #ac813d
Okay so now you are going to color all the frames, the circle frame, the rectangle frame and all 3 little frames with this color #ac813d, recolor these the same way we colored the text, go to Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat-then on your layers palette right click and add new raster layer, flood fill that layer with the color.
 You can do this same thing to change the honey comb
Now we are going to add a paper in each frame, I will tell you how to do the circle frame and then just repeat the same process for the other frames. So now to do that use your magic wand, click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 4, then open up a paper of choice from your scrap kit, right click copy, and right click, paste as new layer. Place the paper below the circle frame, to move layers you can do it 2 ways, one way is to go to Layers-Arrange-move up or down, the other way is go to your layers palette and with your mouse drag the layer up or down, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. Now remember do this same thing for all the other frames.

Now I'm going to tell you how we are going to add our tubes in all the frames starting with the circle frame, then follow these same directions on the 3 small square frames. Now in the circle frame using your magic wand, click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 3 then open up your tube of choice and right click copy and paste as new layer, place this tube below the frame, duplicate. Then move the duplicate above the frame, and close off that layer for now. On the original tube go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None, on the duplicate tube open up the layer and erase any parts of the tube that are sticking out of the bottom of the frame. Follow these same directions to put your other tubes in the 3 small square frames.
Add any elements you want from the scrap kit.  Making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer
Then on your layers palette, add new raster layer above the white raster layer on the bottom, and flood fill with the color #c08e40, then add your mask, to add your mask, go to Layers-Load/Save Mask-Load mask from disk
Find your mask then click load and then go to Layers-Invert Mask
Add your name and copyright info and your are done!
