The great outdoors alpha

Lily is definitely going to be ok after her adventure with a tick! No side-effects so far, so I guess we're in the clear! Currently, she is watching TV - there are some birds on there chirping away and it's got her enthralled! Sooooo cute!

Hubby is making lots of noise at the moment ripping up old flooring ready for our lovely new solid oak floor boards - our house will be so beautiful when it's all done, so I have to put up with the noise for the sake of beauty!! LOL!

I am cooking dinner - dangerous, because I don't cook well at all, but it's just pasta bake, so what can go wrong? :o) Last time I said that, I burnt my hand and dropped it all over the kitchen floor!! I am clumsy as you know and cooking seems to bring out the worst in me!

I love reading all your comments and today someone asked where my wine kit was - can I please point you in the direction of Grape Crush!! LOL! I also feel, judging by your well wishes, that you are all growing very fond of Pompey and Lily, so I will be expecting you all to offer some doggy sitting duties for my next holiday! ROFL!! I think they'd like Susie2shoes first as she is fairly close to me - they don't travel well! But, I am open to offers after that!! ;o)

So, for today, we have the alpha for The Great Outdoors kit - again, it's one you could use with quite a few kits - I hope you like it (I've included the staple). Until tomorrow.....

Thanks for the alpha. My dads just sanded my floor boards and we've stained and varnished them but mine are a bit wheathered though as they have been down since 1932 and have a lil it of woodworm that has been treated. I love natural floors it'll look fab. When it's been layed you'll probably wann lie on floor and stroke it lol!

Hi

Thank you for "The Great Outdoors Kit".

It it nice to hear that Lily is doing great with no side effects from the tick. So far Chewie my dog has had no problems from the ticks he has gotten.

Love this alpha Vic, very versatile. The puppies are always welcome for a playdate or sleepover with our fluff monster, but there is that little matter of our rather strict quarantine requirements LOL. We have polished floors too, and whilst I do love them, they show every bit of dust which drives me mad.

TY for the kit. I just got back from the mountains in NC and this kit will be perfect. I am still checking my dog, Skippy for any ticks; so far, so good. When you come to America, Lily and Pompey may stay in DE with us. They won't have much room but they will be spoiled...lol

I see you survived your camping trip. You have to admit, you did have a good time. Any time you are having wine with friends is a good time. Believe me, I know. LOL

I do have a question, all the alpha's I see out there, I never see the ' apostrophe. Why? There are som many times I need to use the ' and it doesn't work out.
Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks again for the kit. By the way, I am making spaghetti and sausage tonight and what would spaghetti be without some wine!

Wow love both the elements and the alpha thank you!!! Re Ticks they are horrid I was stroking my cat and found one on him a couple of years ago it was disgusting! he was fine though! LOL

Great alpha...thank you Vicki!

Excellent alpha! Again and again, I say I like fonts better, and then you come up with these amazing alphas!

I'm jealous of your hardwook. I'd love to put that in all over the house, but for now I guess I'll just have to smile about my fake tile vinyl and wearing-out carpet. :)

Bec said...

Thank you for the nice alpha. Can't wait to her more doggy tales. I'll be glad to keep them any time you are in Texas :).

I absolutely love all your stuff. You are very talented. I know I don't give many comments but I enjoy reading your blog. The freebees are just alittle perk. Keep up the good work and keep telling us about your adventures and about the dogs.

I wish I had hardwood floors... and a dog sitter!

Thanks for this alpha!

jaye said...

I'll take them Vicki! It would only be a 4 hour flight plus a 5 hour time difference.....not sure about the quarantine or if there would be one. But I have a nice big fenced in yard for them to run and of course run of the house when indoors :)

thanks for the alpha. Kit looks great.

Stacey said...

Hi,
TY so much for this Alpha and all your beautiful kits. I am new to digital scrapbooking. So far I have only collected goodies, and just yesterday I started learning how to use photoshop elements... so hopefully I can have my first page ready soon. It is soooo overwhelming.

This is the first blog in which I felt compelled to leave more than a thanks because I feel as if I could scrap all my layouts only with your work. You are amazing. I love your colour combination, your taste, your creativity.

All my best, and thanks again,
a newbie in Canada =)
