See where the arrow is pointing? Click on that and move it back and forth. The image will rotate. Play around with it until you get it to the angle you like.[/b]
I'm using PSP 9 and dont have that button. (or at least not that I can see )

Try using the deform tool. It looks like this in the tool bar. I think the older versions use that instead. See if that helps. You should be able to rotate it with that. You can also use Image Rotate. I don't like that as much though.

It looks good! I would adjust your drop shadow down a bit, though.

When I get to the flower part I put it under everything like you said but then I can't get it to show up again even with the selection tool.

Ok, my guess is you started with a white background and you put it underneath the white background. Look at the layer palette and see if there is a background layer. If there is move that layer to the back.

That looks really good. The only thing that you may want to work on is adjusting the drop shadow. I think PSP's default drop shadow is set really high. I like to use a really small drop shadow of 5 pixels or less. I think you are off to a great start!!! I hope you will participate in the other lessons.
