“The Witching Hour” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Jessica of Gothic Inspirations and can purchased from her store Gothic Inspirations.  You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Jessica for another fantastic kit.

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

Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 5 as a new layer.
Resize 60%
Move upward on your canvas - see my tag for reference.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 5 Into Selection.
Apply Greg’s Factory Output Vol. II - Pool Shadow:
Use default settings.

Copy and paste the following elements below the frame and move into position.  Don’t worry about what overhangs the frame.  We’ll clean the mess up in a bit.
