Open up Template and ShiftD and close original...delete copyright layer
close all layers except the background layer...the one we'll be working on

Choose a paper of choice(I chose paper #4)/copy/paste...now go to layers/Load/
save mask/load mask from disk/ and find your mask of choice...with these setting
see photo below....go to layers/merge group/resize by 80%


now make circle layer active/selection/modify/smooth with these setting(see photo below)
choose paper of choice(I chose paper #6) now resize to 
fit circle go to selection/invert and click ok/go to paper layer and delete/layers
merge/merge down/keep activated...copy/paste the word art on top of circle layer
while still on the circle layer go to selections invert/ then go to word art layer and delete
de-activate/add drop shadow.

now we're going to activate the rectangle layer and copy/paste your paper of choice
while still on the rectangle layer go to selections invert/ then go to paper layer and delete
layers/merge/merge down/add drop shadow

go to the rectangle2 and rectangle3 layer and repeat the same process as you did with the
previous layer...do the same with ribbon1 and ribbon2
make sure you resize all your layers by 80% after each copy/paste

now come the great part....it's time to decorate...you can either follow my tag or you can use
whatever element you chose to use. I used the water,ducks,tree,cloud w/ sun and tag
make sure you add a drop shadow to each element...I used H-1/V-1/H40/B-5.00

To animate or not is up to you..the filter is very easy to follow,but I will try to explain it.

ok because I wanted the water puddle to be animated and have it rain too...I used the
Sqirlz Water Reflections filter...first you need to close off your three ducks if you're
using them. Copy merge your tag and paste as a new layer...now save this tag as a jpg.
Now open up the filter and go to open and find your tag.Once the tag comes up, go to
reflect option/customize rain/snow with these setting

number of raindrops/snowflakes-1967
Length-70   brightness-255    softness-100
Depth of field-10    width-2    speed 0.4
transparency-50   direction variation-0   direction-213

now click on the Y picture and click on rain/snow/ripple combination
next click on the red ring and draw a line around the water area
once that's done click on the animation...if satisfied click on the gif
button and save as a gif...once your tag is saved go back to PSP and
close all layers except the ducks...copy merge/paste as a new layer
remove all the excess surrounding area and copy/paste to animation shop
once in animation shop find your tag that your saved(make sure it's the gif tag)
this tag has 20 frames so you need to duplicate the ducks to 20 frames
copy and paste the ducks into the tag on top of the water...once satisfied
with your animation save as gif.

You're done!!!
