Tube of choice - I'm using the awesome work of Elias Chatzoudis.  Do not use this image without a license.  You can purchase his tubes/license at MyPSPTubes.

Scrap kit - I'm using Brandy of Brandies Eye Candies portion of the Enchanted Dreams Boutique's new store collab " Candy Shoppe".  You can purchase this great collab here.
