1.  Open Scrippy and click on File-New or click on the white icon at the top left to start up a new master scrippy.

2.  Insert a background and use lily-bg2.jpg.

3.  Insert a sound.  It is called godmusthavespent.mid. Set it for continuous.

4.  Now insert a ticker.  Put anything in there that you'd like.

5.  Next we need a positioned container.  Set all margins to 15 over on the right.  I'm only showing the horizontal but vertical is done the same.

6.  Under that container insert a frame, inset, 2 pixels and use the color #0A444F

7.  Next we need to insert a background.  Use lily-bg3.jpg.

8.  Insert a second main container and set all of the margins at 25.  Make sure that this one is lined up with the first, as it is a 'main' container.

9.  Insert a background and a frame under this second container.  The background to use is lily-bg1a.jpg  The frame is the same as before, inset, 2 pixels wide and color of #0A444F

10.  Next, we will insert another main positioned container.  Set all margins to 35.

11.  Put in a background and use lily-bg3.jpg.  Now insert another background, use the color white and make it 50% transparent.  You can skip this second background if you are using one that is easy to read over.  I found this one to prohibit reading easily so I added the second background.

12.  Insert another 2 pixel inset frame also under this container and use the same color as before.

13.  Here is a picture of how everything goes.  Please check what you have against this and make sure your containers are in the right places.  Most often the errors I see concern having put something in the wrong place.

14.  Next we will put in another container and under that a frame and our main image.  This container has all of it's margins set to 40.  The frame is a 10 pixel, double style and placed over the background using the same color as before.

15.  Go to insert/positioned object/positioned image and use the graphic called lily-done.jpg.  Set this from THE TOP at 20 pixels.  Failure to set this image 'from the top' will result in the stat not working properly.

16.  Next we will put in a message area.  Note in the image above that it does not go inside of any container but sits alone over at the left margin.  The right and left margins should be set to 120.  The top margin is 445 and the bottom margin here is 50, although it can be made smaller than that, probably even 30 would work just fine.  Type some text in here, select it and change it to be centered.

*note:  to make sure your text area works, type in enough text so that one line is filled and becomes two lines.  Now enter to a third line, type a letter and enter again until you have five or six lines.  Preview the stat and make sure your text is staying where you need it.

17.  Insert a loading message.  If you do not want to use one, uncheck use loading message and there won't be one.

Congrats!  You are all done!
