This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP and AS. I use X5 but any version will do.

This tut uses a FTU scrap kit from Angie PSP called Bohemian Rhapsody, and is available HERE.

The cat image is copyright to Jeff Haynie and is available for purchase from CDO HERE
The rain animation is FTU from SophisticatSimone and is available HERE
