Hi Paul! Thanks for the warm welcome! Most people call me Elissa, but I do love creativity.....Ray & I are having technical difficulties...just wanted to let everyone know that we are ok other than internet connection problems. We really miss everyone there a lot. Hope to catch up soon. I've been in the background for about 4 years so I feel like I know everyone except the newest members here....I sure hope this works this time. Four inch screen made me delete your comment, Paul. Sorry!
