Open Christmas BG supplied resize by 85.
Copy bg#5 and Christmas BG supplied & paste between mask and wreath#4.
With selection tool point to point make a selection around the wreath.

We are goint to save this selection for later,
Go to Selection - Load/Save Selection - Save Selection to Alpha Chanel, name the selection now and save.

Place the tube of your choice and move it between the tree & snowman.
Resize Reindeersliegh by 13 copy & paste to the left side of your tag.
Add copyright and your name, I used the snowdrift plugin to the name with the following settings:

Open Snow animation in your Animation Shop, select all frames, copy & paste in your psp,
if you are using a earlier version of psp Export Frames to PSP.
Ok, now you have the Snow layers (10 layers) and your tag, several layers.
Let's work on the tag fist, hide background, mask, BG#5 and Christmas BG layers.
Merge visible the rest of layers. Hide the layer you just merge.
Now merge visible the layers left, unhide. You now have 2 layers. We are going to add the snow.
Click on the first layer whitch is the BG - Selections - Load/Save selection - Load selection from Alpha Channel (find the one you named early). This should select around the wreat frame.
*Copy the first layer of the snow, Paste into Selection to your tag. Deselect.
Copy Merged and take it to the Animation Shop. Paste as a New Animation.
Back to the tag on PSP and undo twice.
Go now to the second layer of the snow, repeat same step you did with the first layer of snow (*) But now Paste After Current Frame. Keep repeating that until you get all 10 layers of snow (you should have 10 frames in Animation Shop.
View Animation , If animation is ok then Optimize and save as a GIF.
