 “Falling All Around” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Nette of Nette’s NightOwl Works and can be purchased from her store CountryCorner Creations.   You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Nette for a really terrific autumn kit.
This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Copy and paste Frame 1 as a new layer.

Duplicate twice – Resize one of them 90% and the other 80%
