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.

Scraps Of Darkness March Reveal, Needful Things - Episode #41 - When Pigs Fly and Cats Swim

Welcome to Reveal Day for Scraps Of Darkness March Kit called Needful Things, and to Episode #41 - When Pigs Fly and Cats Swim. 
Very interesting name for this kit and so fitting for Miss Kitty. This is indeed, an unique kit featuring the Graphics45 papers Olde Curiosity Shoppe. Fun, colorful, whimsical and unusual- puuurfectly Kitty style. 

Once again, Kitty would boast that this kit was named with her in mind. 
Have you noticed that Escape Kitty can turn almost anything around to be all about her?  That little cat
has a gigantic amount of cat-itude.

Kitty's sporting a new look for this episode. In Episode #40, she parachuted in the beautiful sparkling ocean.  I knew she had to have a plan.  Kitty doesn't do things unless she has some type of plan floating about her little furry head.  

She grabbed a swim mask, some fins and a snorkel.  I am hoping Kitty can out swim the sharks but knowing Kitty as I do, if she can't out swim the sharks, she can absolutely outsmart them and perhaps dazzle them with her charm in an effort to buy her time to paddle to shore. 

If there is one thing Escape Kitty does well, other than darting for the door and breaking free, it's making friends.  She's befriended a wolf, a bear, a moose, a kangaroo and many birds so I have no doubt she can reason with a great white. 

I noticed that Kitty only brought two flippers for her back paws so I imagine she's gonna "dog paddle" with the front two.  What a mental image that conjures for me!  Legs kicking, arms flopping, paddle Kitty, Paddle! 

When you dry off, you should think about meeting up with Chena.  She's probably worried abut you. 

This was created using the wonderful Scraps Of Darkness March Kit.  This may well be my favorite kit yet. Please take a look at the Scraps Of Darkness kit and see what whimsy you can create. 

This was created using the March SOD sketch design by artist suepup, Charlotte Jenkins.  Thanks Charlotte. 

I used the Dusty Attic Shells 6pk DA0048.  I used some Extra Thick Gesso for texture then covered 
with Shimmerz Enamlez in Sparkliscious. Then I topped the wet Enamlez with some blue micro beads. 

Here is a close up of Escape Kitty in her sporty "get-up". 

If you would like to see what the rest of the design team has created, please check them out here.

Thanks to Maggi Harding for her whimsical collaboration on this Kitty/Chena series.  While Chena is not decked out in swim gear for this episode, she remains faithfully on the beach waiting for her travel companion to finish up her silliness and dry off.  I suspect that Miss Chena, the Standard Poodle with certain standards, does her fair amount of waiting around.  So thanks dear Maggi.  Check out Maggi's talent and her artistic flair like no other.  Scrap Travel and Bark.

Also one more shout out to Maryanne Stanford, aka Oziem for making this Australian journey possible.  

Thanks for looking.
