Live,Laugh.Love tutorial By Sher (animated)

I made this tag today May 27, 2009
Any similarities is purely coincidental.
I'm using the Gorgeous work of Suzanne Woolcott You
Must have her licenses to use her tubes you can purchase them Here
The template I used was made By Missy you can get it Here
The Mask I used was made by Chelle you can get it Here
The scrap kit is a called Blessings its a FTU kit made by Mar you can get it Here
Plugins used VM Extravaganza you can find it Here
Font on Live, laugh, love is cookie dough font
Font used on name is Sweetheart Script I think it PTU but any pretty
script font will work.
Remember this is just a guide , any scrap kit or tubes will work
and you will still have a pretty cute tag, Great imaginations go a long way!
