Meet Ellay of the Scraps of Ellay!

Let's start with the basics:
Name: LoriAnn or Lori....or LA
Username at Stuff To Scrap: Ellay
Store: Soon to be Stuff To Scrap

Now that you know which designer we're talking to, let's learn a little more about them and family comes first:

Husband: Jim
Kids: Jim
Pets: Jim

What do you like doing with your family? We loooove working out at the gym, and when it's warmer, running outside. We love to hike, but rarely get the opportunity (I'm picky about hiking weather). We go through movie phases, too. It doesn't really matter what we are doing, though....we always have fun!!

It's an alternate universe and your computer won't turn on for an entire week, what do you do with yourself? Good grief, I would HOPE that I would clean my house!! I know that I would do more running. I also love to read.... and I LOVE research, especially health/nutrition related topics, as well as natural living resources.

Alright, the computer's all better-let's talk digi-scrapping for a few minutes.

When did you start designing and how did you learn? I started around February of this year! Mostly self taught, but I've done a designer challenge that taught me a lot!!

What program/programs do you use to design? I use mostly PSPX2. I also use Art Rage a little....I'm still learning about it. I have GIMP, but I only use it for a couple of things at this time.

How did you pick your digi-scrapping name? Well, most of my friends call me "LA"...short for Lori Ann. Years ago, I got into the habit of signing notes to my roommate as "Elay". When I started trying to use it as my user name at various places, "Elay" was always taken (who is this person?). Anyway, I added an extra "L" and the rest is history!!

What's your favorite kit that you've designed? That's a tough one. It seems like I always like the newest one the best! LOL! I think I would have to go with my current kit, Bears Eat Beets. The title always makes me laugh and I love the colors!! It's available for free on my blog, but only until Sunday!

Alright, this is a hard one, but what is your least favorite? The only thing hard about this one is choosing which one! LOL! I think it would have to be one I did for a designer challenge. It was my first kit with absolutely no CU items, and I had to try extractions and such. Night.Mare. I am getting better, though!! LOL! There are actually a couple of papers that I really like in here, but that's about it. The kit is called Midnight Confessions....I have no idea why.

Describe yourself in one word: Agreeable (though some might disagree)

Share a secret with us, what's something not everyone knows about you? Okay....I asked my husband to help me with this one. Know what he said? "There's nothing people don't know because you tell EVERYTHING." LOL! So, I can't think of any secret. But, when I was a toddler, I ate a tube of Ben Gay and had to have my stomach pumped...and I had blisters all over my mouth. I don't remember it, but I've been told. Lots of people know that story, but I'll bet you didn't...... ;)

If I said you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go? That is a tough one....I want to go soooo many places!! I guess I would choose Ireland. I've always wanted to go there (or Scotland).

What is your favorite food? Gosh, I guess I would have to say pizza. It's very rare that I will say no to pizza!!

What is your favorite TV show? I guess I would have to say The Office. You could probably guess that from the Bears Eat Beets kit, huh? LOL!

What is your favorite color? I always say blue. :) I'm not really a big "favorites" person, though...can you tell? These things change daily! LOL!

Alright, thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and welcome to Stuff To Scrap!
