sb-pmt-candygirl-shoe.png (you should have 2 shoes) will get the following shadow:

Add the Merry Christmas wordart I provided you in my supplies and place it on top of the layer named "1" in your Layer's Palette.
Position it how I have mine (or how you want it).

Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Place it on top of your Oval template paper layer.
Duplicate your tube one time and Adjust>Blur>Gaussian Blur>3 and then change the blend mode to Lighten.
Make your oval template layer active and with your magic wand, click it.
