I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. You can purchase his art and a license HERE.

This is a PTU tagger kit bundle called Teen Boy and Teen Girl by Seven's Scraps. You can purchase it HERE.

I've used a Template# 85 by Melissa'z Creationz. It can be downloaded HERE.

The mask is by Vixen, #147. Download it on her blog HERE.

My supplies can be downloaded HERE.
