Give it a slight Inner Bevel 2x's:

Decorate your name with some candy corn if you like.

Open up the Witch and Ghost layers.
Copy Merge

~Time to Animate~

Open up Animation Shop.
Edit/Paste/As New Animation.

Back in PSP.
Move your witch forward in the path you want it to fly.
Copy Merge.

Back in AS.
Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

Back in PSP.
Move your witch forward again.
Copy Merge.

Back in AS.
Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

Repeat the above steps until your witch "flies out of sight".
TIP:  Keep your eye on the witch to be sure it can't been seen outside of the frame.  
If it does then erase what shows.
Copy Merge
Paste it into AS like you've been and when you return to PSP then hit the Undo button until the entire witch appears.
Then continue moving the witch forward as you were.

Once your witch has flown "out of sight" then open up your ghost layer.
Repeat the same steps you did with the witch.

Once you have all the frames copied into AS and your witch flies this way, the ghost floats that way:
Highlight Frame 1.
Edit/Copy
We want a pause in between the witch taking flight and the ghost floating so look for frame where you see the witch last.
Highlight that frame.
Edit/Paste/After Current frame
Animation/Frame Properties:
Change the Display time to 175.

Highlight the first frame.
Animation/Frame Properties:
Change the Display time to 175.

View your animation.
If you're happy with it then save.

I’d love to see your results.
Email me!
Hugs,
Bev
