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 #16 Escape Kitty as a Super Hero

Episode #16 Escape Kitty as a Super Hero

This was made for a challenge - you had to pick a super hero and explain, scrap and gab on about their powers, costume, villain, etc. We all know I have the gift of written gab.

Escape Kitty is my Superhero - of course.
1. Scrapped in her Superhero colors: brown and orange for her fur colors and green for the outdoors she loves.

2. Her location: she is sleeping in her Kitty Basket - which would be akin to her Batcave if she were Batman. This is her favorite resting place to think, plot, dream, watch the world and the perfect vantage point to break free as it is directly in front of a sliding glass door. A superhero needs a quick means of escape ya know.

3. The background shows where Kitty plans to travel - far far away lands all around the world

4. I have included her nemesis of sorts: The Dusty Attic chipboard  birds. Birds taunt Escape Kitty all the time and mock her when she is stuck in the house.

5. The compass in the bottom is her tool she uses after she applies her Superhero powers of the quick escape. (I found the compass at a Church sale)

6. Hubby placed a cowboy hat on her to show what she is thinking, where she wants to go next. This is supposed to be like a thought bubble I guess. But Kitty does not wear a costume - she's a cat. No costume except a hat once in a while.

Gotta come clean. While I was searching for Escape Kitty in Colorado - posing to be at Scrapping Camp scrapping with the a bunch of gals (back in saga #15), one of the gals sent me on an errand to get some groceries for dinner. I got a bit side tracked when I saw a church sale.

You've gotta understand! There were no scrapping stores around and I needed supplies so the church sale was gonna have to do. ( and I grabbed some cookies at the bake sale that the other scrapping girls NEVER saw. shhhhhh. Why is it church sales have the BEST cookies?) I did get some stares of wonder when I returned with my next to new stash and assumed it was because I was bringing back junk, but now thinking, it could have been chocolate chip cookie mess all over my face. Hastily eating and all. 

I guess I bought a few things at the church sale. That is where I found the compass in the LO. I also bought a ratty old basket, soaked it in water to soften the reeds or wood and flattened them out to dry. I also found some Colorado sticks and wrapped them together with twine.

The other garage sale find were those metal pieces on the top right . They are really butt ugly earrings. I had to pop them on because they are sooooo darn ugly, but show Kitty's feminine side.

I need to clarify - the butt ugly earrings came in a baggie with the compass. Apparantly the sweet 'lil ladies at thhe church thought they were doing me a favor by creating such a grab bag of goodies complete with triangle earrings. But heck, I used them. LisaN ( Raining) has the other pair of equally unattractive earrings that came in the grab bag. Go search out her extraordinary LO's to see where they show up - and YES, they will be appearing on a LO. She will make them look heavenly because she has that kind of gift! Get it? Church sale, heavenly? LOL - oh brother.

Dinner was a tad late because the errand girl got distracted. OK fine - I admit it now, I did not get lost, I shopped. :)

Thanks for looking. You know who to call if you need a superhero. Yeah, probably not me because I'd stop along the way at a yard sale or something.
