Celine - Simple

Any resemblance to any other tutorial is by pure coincidence.
This was just a result of me sitting down with psp open and writing down as I went.
I wanted to give tut writing a try.
Here's my first try be gentle on me. Please.
These techniques were learned along the way and I just hope you can understand what I'm trying to say. LOL.

Thanks Candi for your help in testing and fixing what I missed! xo
