Selections/select all/ modify/ expand/ 10 pixels INVERT

Open pp 1l.jpg   copy and paste it over to your working image.. just the deformation tool to bring in the corners

so that its smaller but larger then the frame. like below. Cut on the paper layer. Apply a 3d drop shadow on the frame.

#4.  Open element ov 1.png resize 60% copy and paste to your image below the paper layer below the frame layer.. but above the mask layer.

take care not to have it off the side edge.

Don't forget your 3D shadow.

Add a new layer to the bottom of the layer palette and fill with white.

the layer and move to the right side of your image. Below you see just a few of the pink dots scattered around

#7.  Open the tube you're going to use.. Copy her below the flower layer.

Open wa 2.png resize 60% copy and paste it on top layer.

Now merge all the layers from the dots layer down to the white layer.

Have the paper layer that is below the frame layer all to it's self.. merge all the top layers on up from frame layer up.

Don't forget your copyright info for the tube... I put it on it's own layer that way I can bring the opacity down on it.  So it won't jump out at you.
