“Ocean Waves” is a tagger size scrap kit also available in Page Kit created by Soxie of Soxational Scraps and can be purchased from ExquisiteScraps.  You can visit her blog here. Thank you Soxie for a truly wonderful kit.  I just fell in love with it.
This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP. 

~~ Let’s get started ~~

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

Don’t worry about placement of anything. 
I’ll let you know when it’s time to move into place.

New Raster layer.
Make your Selection Tool active set on Rectangle.
Create a rectangle approximately 475 x 325 pixels.
Copy and paste Paper 7 Into Selection.
Adjust/Add Remove Noise/Add Noise:
Gaussian and Monochrome checked
Noise: 35%
Selections/Modify/Contract by 7.
New Raster layer.

Reopen your background layer.

Copy and paste Bouy as a new layer.

Copy and paste Umbrella as a new layer.
Resize 70%

Copy and paste Frame 3 as a new layer.

Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.

New Raster Layer. 
Select All. 
Copy and paste Paper 1 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.

Stay on this mask layer.
Click your Magic Wand in the bottom left corner of your canvas.  You should have marching ants all around your mask layer.
Highlight the Sand layer in your layers pallet.
