This tutorial was written by me on August 28th, 2013 and was written assuming you have a general knowledge of PSP. You will need the following supplies:
"Hi JinX" is a wonderful tagger-size kit for Halloween and it's adorable! Created by Vicki of Gemini Creationz, you can purchase it from her store HERE. Thanks so much Vicki!
