Red White and Boom

This tut was made using PSPx4
And knowledge of PSPx4.

Supplies needed 

Tube of choice. I used one by Barbara Jensen.
You need a license to use her work. You can get it 
and her work at Barbara Jensen Tubes.
PTU kit Red White and Boom by Freeks Creations.
Which can be gotten at Mystical Scraps.
Font of choice I used 2Peas 4th of July.

Go ahead and open list of Things here used and go ahead and resize them
by the percentage by each item. If there is no number no need to resize.

Paper11 - 115%
Cake_Pops - 75% 
Hat  75%
tube - -  85% 
Bomb2 - 50% 
Gradiant (Which I made - Download)
Put in your Gradients folder for psp

When you see ** look at tag to see placement for Elements. 
Sometimes it is hard to say just how to place it.
Drop shadows added are unless otherwise stated.

It is always good to check for overhang of shadow on edges of tag. 
I have made a tag or to and not check and when I got done 
I would post it and see the over hang on the sides and think MAN!! lol
