Adita

This lesson was written by me, Jille, on April 10th, 2010 in the Dutch version of PSP X3. The lesson can be made in other versions as well.
I followed my own ideas, any connection with an existing lesson is a coincidence.

Credits and Material
- Font Cataneo BT
- Tube - femme_voilée_nini_tube
