“Creepy Hollow” is a scrap kit created by Gail of Aussie Scrap Designs and can be purchased from her store Aussie Scrap Designs.  You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Gail for a spook-tacular creepy kit!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Make your Selection tool active set on Circle.
Create a 500 pixel circle - it’s alright if it’s not centered.
New Raster layer.
Flood fill with #000000
Adjust/Add Remove Noise/Add Noise
Uniform and Monochrome checked
Noise: 30%
Effect/Edge Effect/Enhance

Center the circle on your canvas.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer
Copy and paste BG4 Into Selection.
Apply Greg’s Factory Output Vol. II - Pool Shadow:
Use Default settings accept move the Intensity bar to 100.

Copy and paste the following elements onto your canvas above the circle paper.  Move them into position - see my tag for reference.  Don’t worry about what overhangs the circle - we’ll clean that up in a bit.

Copy and paste Brown Leaf as a new layer.
Resize 25%, 25%, and 70%
Apply Mura’s Meister - Wallpaper (Perspective)
Use Default Settings.
Erase whatever leaves you don’t want on your canvas.  I left a trail moving diagonal across the canvas.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add your embellishments.  I used:
Crow:  Resize 30%

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste BG10 Into Selection.
