You will need the following for this tut:
Winter Apple Scrap Kit, which you can find 

Tube of Choice, i choose an Exclusive tube from Picsfordesigns
Paint Shop Pro(I used x4) Any should work
Plugins Eye Candy 4000 & Xero
Let it snow animation, which you can find at Love Shack Here

Okey to get started, open a new transparent raster 625x225
Open paper3, copy & paste it to your blank layer (that is going to be your background)
Add new raster layer, Open up your tube of choice, copy and place on your new blank layer
Add it in a line of 4 as shown below in the example.

Make the opacity 67, and then add new raster layer.
Open EL24 copy and plaste onto your new blank raster, the add a new raster layer
Open EL4 copy & paste to the bottom right, and mirror and copy paste to the bottom left
Add new raster layer

Open EL25 resize to about 70-80% (which should be size 322x145) then copy & paste onto your new blank layer at the top to make a line, then put the Opacity to 77, add new raster layer
Open EL9 copy & paste in the middle of your new blank layer, then add a new raster layer
Open EL41, resize to about 40% (which should be 366x530) copy & paste and add Shadow Lab(go to Effects, plugins, eye candy 4000, shadow lab, and apply these settings Black, Center-0, Overall Bur- 23.30) then add new raster layer

Open EL48 resize to about 70% (which should be 244x320) copy & paste onto your new blank layer, add shadow Lab(same Settings) then add a new raster layer
Open your tube of choice again, Resize to your liking, copy and paste in the middle on your new blank layer, and add Shadow Lab(Same settings as above)
Then add new raster layer.

Merge first 3 layers (if you used the tube I choose you will have 4 layers with the dog) than merge the other layers together, you should now have 2 different layers bottom one is backgrounds, and first layer is your elements and tube.  

We will name the first layer Frame 1 and bottom layer frame 2
On your frame 1 add new raster layer, (Border Making Time)  open paper 3 again/copy & paste onto your new blank layer/add new raster layer. Add flood fill color to your new blank layer #FF5565
Select your magic ward, select your pink background then go up to Selections/Modify/Contact(make it 3)/ enter & delete. Go down to your paper3 layer below and repeat the step, and then back up to your pink background add flood fill and repeat the previous steps, when it is deleted right click to get rid of the ants. Then you will want to go up to Adjust/Add noise with these settings Gusian/Monochrome/42 and then merge layer down, select all and add Gradient Glow(Black) at 3.00. Then merge border layer to your frame 1.

Add all correct Copyright & Name. ( Merge to border & frame 1 layer)
You should now be back to only 2 layers Frame 1 & Frame 2

Now its time for the animation part.
Hide Frame1, then go up to Edit/Copy/Copy Merge
Open animation shop, then open up the “Let it snow” animation
This animation will have 80 frames, paste your Frame2 as new animation
Then press & hold down Ctrl/Shift/L  until you have 80 frames of your frame2
Then on your “Let it snow” you will want to press  Ctrl/A which will select all frames, go to your first frame of the let it snow, and with your mouse hold down your click button you will get a lil white paper pointer at that time without releasing you will move your mouse with all the let it snow frames attached over to your frame2  (first frame) and get it lined up and then release and hit preview,  if it isn’t to your liking hit the back button on both frames & just repeat till you get it to your liking.

Now back to psp, hide frame 2 and unhide frame 1, go to edit/copy/copy merge, and then go to animation shop paste and repeat all the previous steps above.  Before saving make sure you preview to make sure its to your liking. Then save and your done.

For the avatar, go back to psp, open a new raster size 125x200, Undo the Border, copyright & name from frame1, then copy frame 1 and paste onto your new raster, adjust it to your liking and then repeat the border instructions and then add copyright & name and then save and your all done.

Good luck & happy creating. Hope you all enjoyed this tut.
