This tut is entirely of my imagination. Any similarities is purely coincidental. This was written on August 4, 2014.

Template BabesDesignz_Template16. Unfortunately Babes Designz has closed her blog. I have uploaded the template to 4shared until she decides to start another blog. I didn't realize that she had closed her blog until after I made the tag. I have all of her templates already saved. If you have trouble getting the template please let me know.

I am excited and scared at the same time. This is going to be very painful. When they did the double mastectomy I was cut from back to back, all the way across my chest except for a finger wide piece in the middle. This time I will be cut there again, along with being cut from hip to hip, to do the tummy tuck. I know this will be extremely painful. I am not looking forward to the pain. Right now I have pain due to my fibromyalgia. That will get worse with the surgery. But I am looking forward to the end results, to have boobs again. At times I am self-conscious about not having any. At first it didn't bother me, it was kind of nice not having those 10 pounds on my chest. But I am ready to get them back. Make me feel like a woman again. It will be a difficult 6 months but well worth it in the end.
Will post more later.
I remember what it was like when just starting out in Paint Shop Pro. There are lots of wonderful tuts out there, but most of them are for experienced taggers. It is hard to find a tut if you are a beginner, so I will try to write all my tuts so the beginner can learn and follow along. There will be lots of screen shots to make it easier on you. I apologize to the experienced taggers, but I think that it is good to help out the beginners all we can. Thanks for understanding.
