Any resemblance to another tut is purely coincidence. This tut was done in Psp 9.
But any version of Paint Shop Pro will work. You also need a good knowledge working
You will also need the VDL Adrenaline plugin for the snowflakes.
Animation is also (Optional).
I am using the PTU "Berry X-Mas" Scrap kit from Sue of WackyWinnie Designz.
