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

~~ Let’s get started ~~

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

Copy and paste el1 as a new layer.
Don’t worry about placement yet.

Copy and paste el2
Resize 45%

Move all 3 elements into position –
See my tag for reference.
Merge Visible the two small round frames.

Highlight the rectangle frame.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 2 Into Selection.
Do not Deselect.

Copy and paste your tube below the frame as a new layer.
If you’re using the same tube as I did, Resize 50%
(You should not have to do anything else to the tube and Deselect)
If you’re using another tube and it overhangs the frame:
Tap the delete key.

Highlight the layer with the merged two small frames.
Make your Magic Wand active and click inside of each.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frames.
Copy and paste Paper 2 Into Selection.
Deselect for now.

Arrange the following elements below the frames (see my tag for reference) – don’t worry about what overhangs the frames.  We’ll come back and take care of that:
El 12
El 37
El 9:  Resize 30% - position mostly behind the sandcastle
El 9 again:  Resize 25% - position next to the sandcastle
El 73:  Resize 30%/Mirror
El 59:  Resize 26%/Change the Opacity to Soft Light
El72:  Resize 35%
El 13:  Resize 30%/Duplicate/Mirror one of them
El 62:  Resize 40%/Mirror

Highlight the paper layer that belongs to the small round frames.
Click anywhere outside of the papers.
Highlight each element that overhangs the frame and tap the delete key.

Add your elements.  I used:
El 9:  Duplicate
El 14:  Reel 35:  Resize 75%size 40%
El 25:  Free rotate Left 90 degrees (erase what overhangs the stones)
El 55:  Resize 60%
El 56:  Resize 45%
El 57:  Resize 40%
El 16:  Resize 35% and 85%

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 7 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Resize 105%

Color Pallet:

Make your Text Tool active.
Set the stroke to 1.0
Type your name.

Close out your white background.
Save your tag as a PNG.

  1. This tut would have been nice if all the elements were included. What a waste of my time!
