This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. 
Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.

:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Animation Shop
FTU A Little Irish Charm Scrap kit by Kittz Creationz found at the Creative Misfits Forum here
Tube of choice, I am using Pinup Toons and you need a license to use his work found here
Sparkle Animation found here
Font of choice, I am using Aquarelle
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15
Let's Begin!
 Open up a new image, I like to use a tagger size of 500 x 500
Flood fill white
Now open the heart frame element and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, resize to your liking using the pick tool. Then click inside the frame using your magic wand and then go up to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8, then open up paper 2, and right click copy, right click paste as new layer and place it below the frame, then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard and now your paper should be in the frame like this!
Now open up the umbrella element and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, resize to your liking using the pick tool. 

Open up the twirly ribbon right click copy, right click paste as new layer and place on the bottom of the tag. Resize using the pick tool. Then open up the lily and right click copy, then right click paste as new layer, and place where I have mine, then duplicate then go up to Image-then mirror. Then open the floral border and right click copy, right click paste as new layer and place above the lillies.
Your tag should look like this now
 Now open up your tube of choice and place her on top of everything. 
Add your name and copyright info and proceed on to the rest of the tut in Animation Shop


:Animation Shop:
  Now open up the sparkle animation and you will notice there are 20 frames. Highlight all frames by holding down the Ctrl key and the letter A, so when I tell you to highlight all frames in the rest of this tut, that is what I mean, ctrl key+A. Minimize for now we will come back to this later.
Now go back to PSP and right click copy merged and then go back to AS, and right click paste as new animation. Then right click on the first frame and click paste. You should now have 2 frames. Now right click and copy again til you have a total of 5 frames. Now go back to the first frame and click on it, then highlight all frames. Then right click copy, then on the last frame, frame 5, right click, paste after current frame. Now you will notice that have a total of 10 frames. Now on the 10th frame, right click, paste after current frame and now you will have a total of 15 frames. On the 15th frame right click, paste after current frame and now you will have the 20 frames. Highlight all frames and minimize for now, we will come back to it with the sparkle animation.

Now go back to the sparkle animation and making sure that all 20 frames are highlighted, right click copy and then go to your tag that we just made 20 frames for and on the first frame right click, paste into selection. 
View animation!
and you are done!
