Shapes Template by Me

It's been a long time since I made a template. But thought I would share the one I did today.
You can find my older ones on my old blog here. I also did a sample tag using the template.
For that, I used tubes by Joel Adams which you can find at CDO.
I also used a Steampunk scrap by Bibi which you can find at SATC.
