I've just recently begun trying my hand at tutorials. If you try one of my tuts and would like to show me what you made, please email me at darklydreaming33@hotmail.com. Happy Tagging!

Any resemblance to other tutorials is a coincidence.

Supplies:
1) Tube of Choice. I'm using Devil Wears Latex (48-1) by Jessica Dougherty. This is a PTU tube, which can be purchased at CDO.

Checked on date tutorial is written. It's also available at some of the other stores Tammy sells in. Wilma4ever for example.
