Heart 1:  Resize 10%/Duplicate 5 times
Pom Flowers 3:  Resize 15% and 80%/Mirror

Color Pallet:

Background: #986167
Stroke: 1

Type your name.
Tilt it slightly.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Copy the 1400 x 400 canvas you made earlier.

Paste as a new layer just over the merged layer of the 3 squares.
Make sure it covers all 3 squares and the left side sticks out a little from the left side of the far left frame.
Make your Pick Tool active (hit the K button on your keyboard)
Pull the top down and bottom up so that it's just a little wider than the height of the squares.
I'm sure you're scratching your head wondering what in the world!  There is a reason to my madness, honest!
Rename the Paper layer "MOTION BLUR PAPER" and the merged template layer "MERGED TEMPLATE"
Just leave this paper like this for now.

Copy and paste each of the horses as new layers just ABOVE the frames.
Resize each horse 10% and 65%.
The pole on each horse needs to be lengthened so...

Highlight a horse.
Make your Selection Tool active set on Rectangle.
Section off the top area of the pole.
Copy.
Deselect.
Paste as New layer.
Match this little piece of pole to the bottom part of the pole.
Merge Visible the horse and pole piece.
Center it below one of the frames.

Repeat the above step with the other 2 horses.

To create an almost seamless loop while the animation runs do the following:
Be sure the horses aren't lined up exactly.  Move one horse up, another down, etc.  But don't make it so drastic that one horse is extremely high and another extremely low.  Just slightly "off".
Once you've done that, duplicate each horse.
Merge Visible the duplicated horses.
Rename the layer "Beginning-End Loop".
Close this layer out.
This layer will be used as a stopping guide point.

Highlight the Merged Template layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the Motion Blur Paper layer.
Tap the delete key.
Highlight each of the horses and tap the delete key.
Deselect.

Copy Merged.

~Time to Animate~

Open up Animation Shop.
Edit/Paste/As New Animation.

Back in PSP.
Press the Undo button until the paper and horses are all whole again.  The marching ants around the template should still be there.
Click your mouse on the paper layer.
Press the Left Arrow button on your keyboard to move the paper a little to the left.
Click on a horse and move the horse slightly in the direction you were already moving it.
Repeat this with the other 2 horses.
Highlight the paper and horses and tap the delete key.
Copy Merge.

Carry into AS.
Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

Repeat the above 2 steps.
What you want to do is make each of the horses ride to the top and bottom of each square and when they're making another ride (whether it's up or down) you want it to BARELY match up with the "Beginning End Loop" layer.
You DO NOT want that Beginning End Loop layer to ever show.  It was made strictly to use as a guide.  

Once you created all the frames you care to - 
View your animation.
If you're happy then -
Ctrl + A to highlight all frames.
Animation/Frame Properties:

~Time to Animate~
I bet you thought you'd NEVER get to this point!
But you did....yay!

Open up Animation Shop.
Edit/Paste/As New Animation.

Back in PSP.
Click the Undo button twice - it makes the entire car show up again.
Press the Right arrow key on your keyboard to make the car move forward some
***TIP - If the car won't budge then click your mouse on the car and then press the arrow key on your keyboard.
Once your moved the car forward a little then tap the delete key.

Copy Merge

Carry into AS.
Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

Back in PSP.
Keep repeating the above 2 steps until the car can no longer be seen...it's "drives" off behind the circle.
Copy Merge (you should not see any car at all on this image) and carry into AS.
Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

View your animation this far by clicking on the "View Animation" icon:

If you're happy with it so far then highlight the last frame (this frame should not have a car image on it) and copy.
Highlight the first frame.
Edit/Paste/Before Current Frame.

Back in PSP.

Now you want the car to come in from the opposite direction in the frames on the bottom part of your tag.
To do that simply duplicate and mirror the car element and follow the same directions as above.

In AS - Once you have all frames copied and pasted, have the car driving behind your tube and "disappearing" it's time to change the Frame Properties -
Ctl + A to highlight all frames.
Animation/Frame Properties
Display Time: 13
OK
Use the slider bar at the bottom to slowly scroll through all your frames and look for the frame that should be in the middle somewhere - the frame that has no car showing at all - highlight that frame.
Hold down the Ctrl key and highlight the first frame.
The first frame and the frame in the middle (both are identical looking frames) should now be highlighted.
Animation/Frame Properties
Display time: 150

Animation/Resize Animation:
Pixel Size checked
Width: 500
OK

Go ahead and watch your animation.
If you're happy with it then save.
