Font of choice - I used Arizonia here

Weescotlass Mask 208 here

Plug Ins used:
Eyecandy 3.1 – Glow

“Simpler Days” is a tagger size scrap kit created by me, Bev of HorsePlay’s Pasture Designs and can be purchased from  either of your favorite stores – Lollipops n Gumdrops or Butterfly Blush Designs or Inspirations of Scrap Friends.  You can visit my designing blog here.

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

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

Copy and paste 37 as a new layer.
Resize 75%
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 22 Into Selection.

Add the following elements below the frame – see my tag for reference.
Don’t worry about what overhangs the frame.  We’ll clean that up in a bit.
71:  Resize 50%
66:  Resize 35%
67:  Resize 30%
74:  Resize 30%/Duplicate
58:  Resize 50%
68:  Resize 35%
9:  Resize 30%
16:  Resize 50%/Duplicate/Duplicate/Mirror/Resize 60%
75:  Resize 20%
64:  Resize 25%/Mirror
73:  Resize 20%/Mirror
6 & 7:  Resize 5%/Duplicate as many times as you like

Highlight the paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each element layer that sticks outside of the frame and tap the delete key.

Add the rest of your elements.  I used:
6 & 7:  Resize 50%
27:  Resize 80%/Mirror
4:  Resize 25%
56:  Resize 50%/Duplicate 2x/Mirror one of them/the other tilt with Pick Tool
57:  Resize 50%/Duplicate/Mirror

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 18 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Resize 110%
Merge Group.

Add your name.
Color Pallet:

Type your name.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:
