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.

Episode #40 - Daredevil Kitty - Scraps Of Elegance

Episode #40 - Daredevil Kitty - created using the Scraps Of Elegance March Kit, Butterfly Dreams. 

In Episode #39, Kitty, Chena, and their new friend Kangaroo took a day to enjoy the lovely scenic Nullabor Bluffs and have a nice picnic by the sea.

Who are the characters in this photo, you might ask?  Chena is a pup owned by fellow artist, Maggi Harding.  Maggi kindly allows Chena to sight see with Miss Kitty.  I have to believe that Chena is the sensible one of the pair and a pup of certain "standards".  She is a Standard Poodle after all which must mean something.    I have no idea who owns the Kangaroo, but a  new friend is a new friend.

This time, I think Kitty was too fast for even Chena to speak up.  Before anyone could say "NO Kitty, Don't",  Kitty started digging around in the Kangaroo's pouch for the parachute she brought with her. Wondering how she even fit all that into the Kangaroos pouch?

A parachute?   Really Kitty?  Made with belt straps - ingenious but crazy.  It's plumb amazing that Kitty could get those belts fastened so quickly with her furry paws and no thumbs.  I bet she had practiced this a hundred times over for Kitty puuuurfection.

Well, it worked and off she sailed with one big Kitty leap, parachute all puffed up with air and softly floating her to the sea below.  You do realize that ya gotta swim now Kitty.  I've never seen Kitty swim and I imagine she's all splashes, cat paws flailing and kicking like crazy.  Here's an interesting thought...does Kitty do the dog paddle?

This design was based on a Round Robin Challenge at Scraps of Darkness/Scraps Of Elegance created by our wonderfully creative member, Violent Kittie, Lee.  Escape Kitty and Violent Kittie have become quite chummy.  Lee is a doll and super talented so we thought we would have fun lifting her design.  Please go check out her talent.
This was created using the Scraps Of Elegance Butterfly Dreams Kit.  This month was gorgeous and had a bit of whimsy in it for Kitty.    Please check the kit out and join us.  It's purrfectly coordinated to take all the painstaking headache out of trying to get papers and embelllies to coordinate.
I used some cool trim I had to represent clouds. 

The photo once again is courtesy of Maryanne Stanford, aka Oziem. Thanks Maryanne for the kindness in sending me your wonderful photos for Escape Kitty to use. Maryanne is also a beloved artistic strength at Scrapbook.com.  Please check her gallery about and be prepared for an amazing eye full. 

Thanks also to Maggi Harding and her sweetheart of a dog, Chena.  I have been fortunate enough to meet Chena in real life and take photos of this splendid dog.  She is a snuggly doll and more human like than dog.  She's apparently more well traveled than most humans.

Here is Maggi's blog, Scrap, Travel and Bark.  Please hop over there and check out her creative mind.  It's amazing. 
It's always fun collaborating with Maggi. 

Thanks for looking.
