Who is Escape Kitty?

Let me introduce myself. I am Escape Kitty.

I got my start on Sept 1, 2010 as I was out playing in the yard enjoying the birds and squirrels. Really just minding my own business. Happy. Content. Daydreaming.

When, but in an instant, I caught a movement in the corner of my eye. Since cats are noted for their superior vision, I had to do a double take because I thought my eyesight had failed me. I shut my kitty eyes for a moment and reopened them to disbelief.

A coyote? In MY yard? Could it be? And he's drooling my way? Move move move! Find my mom . Run to safety.

Big mistake! Really big mistake. Now she never lets me outside. Done - left to dream. ahhhhh but Kitty dreams really do come true.

So come follow me! I am off to Escape.

Escape Kitty #27 - Pirate Mutiny PLUS Some Big News

Ahoy!  Introducing the newest Mascot Designer!
Miss Escape Kitty is now Mascot Designer at Scraps Of Darkness.  
This spells mutiny in our household with both of us now designing.......

 Escape Kitty #27 - Pirate Mutiny created with the Oct Scraps Of Darkness Kit, All Hallows Eve. 

Arrrrrrgh ye Matey
 It's time to blow me timbers and shove off to sea.  
 This land lubbing life is not right for me.  
                                     Escape Kitty

I do believe Kitty's causing a mutiny in my house.  She's got to get out and see the world or just see her back yard.  She's been grounded and stuck inside the house for about a month now. 

Awe poor Kitty you say?  Nonsense.  Might YOU be wantin to walk the plank with ye 'ol scallywag thoughts?  She borrowed my credit card to go on her adventures and racked up a mighty frisky balance. 
So, don't be a-sayin poor Little Kitty!

Anyway, she strolled about the house wearing this hat.  Cute.  I thought it was just another Halloween costume she was trying.  Ohhhhhh nooooo!  It wasn't.  It's for real.  She said she's heading out to open seas - though we do not live near the ocean.  She also said she was going to search for a Parrot friend to sit on her shoulder as all Pirates need a parrot companion.  Since birds are her nemesis, she does realize that may be a problem, but she is not an unreasonable pirate Kitty and will negotiate. 

And what's up with the eye patch Kitty?

The treasure chest below has a credit card tucked into it!  In the name of Escape Kitty???  
Big trouble a brewing for sure. 

Thanks for looking and have a puuuuurfect day.

Escape Kitty #26 - Purfect Witch

Escape Kitty - Episode #26 - Purfect Witch created using the scraps of Darkness Oct Kit.  
Nothing like coming home from work and finding your Kitty trying on her Halloween costume. Yeah, it surprised me a bit, but tis the season. 

What has me worried is that I cannot seem to find my broom anyplace. Don't get me wrong - not that I care to sweep the place up, but that Kitty may be considering a new tactic of escape. She's already used a magic carpet - the magic broomstick's not out of the question. 

I'll take full advantage of not being able to find the broom as my excuse not to clean this month. Thanks Kitty! 

What she thinks is funny is that her skirt has bird feathers stuck in it. Since birds seem to taunt her when she is stuck inside, the feather skirt is the ultimate insult to the bird population. 

This was created using the design of Michelle grant for the Dusty Attic sketch challenge. This may very well by my favorite design by the talented Michelle but then again I always say that. I used a Dusty Attic name plate. 

Also want to take a moment to thank all those neked birds looking for their feathers. Must have been crows since the feathers are black. Sorry dudes - their mine now! 

Created using the Scraps Of Darkness Oct Kit- All Hallows Eve. The kits get more and more amazing every month. The reason I love this kit is that it allows me the versatility to create in a number of styles.....Kitty style, or fun, romantic and dark creepy. It all works.

Escape Kitty #25 - The World Around Her

Escape Kitty #25 -  The World Around Her

Ohhhh poor lil thing.  She's still grounded. Stuck inside the house.  
Why is this sweet little angel  of a Kitty grounded you might ask?  Well, she went traveling around the world and did not want to leave home without a credit card, so she used mine.  

In her defense, she thought it was ok and the thing to do.  Her travelin companion, Chena, had a credit card so she thought she needed one also.  Kitty got sick of mooching off Chena.  I have to give Kitty some "credit" for that at least - just not MY credit.  LOL

Chena is a back standard poodle owned by Maggi, by the way.  And Chena had her paws on a credit card becuase Maggi let Chena have her credit card for their trip to Alaska, but she forgot to ask for it back.  WHOOPS!

One spending free-for-all led to the next, and the next.  Now Maggi and I are all tapped out.  Thus and such Kitty is grounded. 

This is a photo of Kitty looking out from my cob web covered garage window as I drive away for work one very early morning.  So sad.  Stuck inside while the world goes on around her.   Once again being taunted by the birds.  

It never dawned on me to actually CLEAN my garage windows, but yeah, looking at them now, they are really nasty.  

Here are some close-ups of the details.  The embellishments came from the Scraps Of Darkness kit. 
The kits are jammed packed with amazing goodies.  Perfect for any style of scrapper.

I also added some wonderful Dusty Attic branches on the LO.  Love the Dusty Attic. 

Please check out Maggi's blog, Scrap Travel Bark for more adventures.  Thanks for her amazing collaboration.  

Thanks for looking and have a puuuurfect day.

I am featured At Robins Nest! How cool is that!

Escape Kitty - What's in a  Nickname? 

Escape Kitty's layout is featured this week at Chattering Robin's blogspot.  They sell Robin's Nest paper and the layout was created using the 2011 Whilshire Collection. 

Kitty looks completely at home in Robin's Nest papers.  It's not just the name she loves and the idea that birds may be involved, but the very rich and regal look is mighty appealing to a cat of her imagined stature.

The kind folks at Robin's Nest have been featuring the Design Team from Scraps of Darkness each Wednesday for a few weeks.  Please check them out.

Special thanks to Lisa Novogrodski for organizing this.

Escape Kitty Episode #24- Study Hard Little Kitty

Escape Kitty Episode #24- Study Hard Little Kitty

Kitty's been grounded for some time now. Her crazy adventures with her dog friend, Chena, have caused me to ground her. Chena is Maggi43's dog by the way. 

She borrowed my credit card for the journey to Niagara Falls and Morocco and now I am stuck with a whale of a credit card bill. 

Kitty's not one to sit around and waste time. She may nap a little but that certainly does NOT amount to wasting time. In her cat dreams she's plotting and thinking. 

I came home from work one afternoon to notice that mywonderful Teresa Collins World Traveler paper had been shredded in an oddly organized way. The words were lined on on the floor. 

Now you really need to look at this interesting piece of paper to understand. The paper has the word "welcome" on it in all the different languages of the world. 

I do believe that Kitty is brushing up on her international travel skills! 
Ohhhhhhh Kitty! What are you up to????? You're grounded, remember? 

Created using the Scraps Of Darkness Sept. Kit - Passages. The kit is totally gorgeous and packed with amazing goodness. You can take it vintage, feminine, or grungy and dark. Whatever your heart desires. It all works. 

I also used a piece of Dusty Attic at the top. OK truth be told that's where my credit card gets used and it's not all Kitty's wild spending. I love me my Dusty Attic. 

Visit Maggi's blog, Scrap Travel Bark for more Kitty and Chena adventures.  She is amazingly talented and I adore her work. Could not ask for a better collaborative mind. 

Thanks for looking and thanks to Mandy, craftysprinkles for her stunning stickpin.

They may very well be little beggars, but they're also little buggers!
