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.

Merry Christmas from My Staff

Merry Christmas from my staff.    
Yes, I have staff. Every pet has staff and if you are reading this, I am betting you are someone's dedicated and devoted staff member.   Mine is my mom, pictured above with me.

Staff members are usually the folks that make you look good, put positive spins on things and generally make the world a better place for the master (me).    But in my particular case, I think I do all that for my staff (mom).  

Anyway, I am here to pass along the good season wishes of my mom.
Merry Christmas and have a happy and healthy 2012.

You can tell we are related because we have the same smile.

After the holidays are over, I have GOT TO BUST outta here!

Ho Ho Ho.....Santa's on His way and so is Kitty

It's official - Santa is on his way and that means Kitty is too.  
This is a recap of 2010 to get ya'll excited!

And now you can track where he is for  Christmas 2011.
As for Kitty, She's all napped up and ready to go.  She tried to talk this guy below into going with her.  It's her cat brother, StayBehind Cat.  

She gave him some cheesy cheap reindeer ears to wear and said he'd fit right in with the rest of the eight, Rudolph and friends.  His name is StayBehind Cat for a reason.  He's momma's chicken-hearted homebody.  He is afraid to leave his house.   Case in point......look at the utterly terrified look on his little blond face.  awe baby!

Escape Kitty simply did not want him to miss the good times.  

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Escape Kitty Episode #32- Santa's Helpers and The Color Room #89

Escape Kitty Episode #32- Santa's Helpers and The Color Room #89 

This is Escape Kitty Episode #32- 
Kitty is taking time out of her adventures to enjoy the Christmas Season. Looks as if she is getting a little cozy in Santa's basket. Guess she figured if ya want to keep up with Santa's busy busy delivery schedule, ya gotta move quick. Kitty's quick - but Santa....well he's magical quick. 

Kitty's just feline sneaky quick. big difference. The basket it is then. 

There could be a bit of conflict at each house however with the whole cookies and milk thing for Santa. Kitty doesn't eat cookies but adores milk. I am hoping that while Santa is busy delivering gifts and boxes and toys, Kitty doesn't lap up all the milk left out by the sweet children. 

Kitty! Please share nice and leave some drink for the "Big Guy". 

Kitty wishes you all a wonderful and joyful Christmas season and thanks you for reading. 

The wonderful design was for the Dusty Attic sketch challenge by Michelle Grant. She is a master at design!  Thanks Michelle!

Thanks also to Sue Feher for the reindeer photo. 

I also used some deeeeelishious Dusty Attic here -snowflake and name plate that I cut up.

Here is the cluster detail up close.

Here is the wonderful Dusty Attic snowflake and the name plate that I cut to fit my needs.
I painted them both with Adirondack Paint - Snow Cap.  The snowflake also has a layer of Shimmerz Enamlez melted on it. 

And this is the close up of the photo.  Kitty looks completely happy as the basket passenger. 
Thanks again to Sue Feher and to you for looking.

Escape Kitty #31 and Reveal Day - December Scraps of Darkness Winter's Eve

Introducing Winter's Eve - December Scraps Of Darkness Kit. 
It's now available and it's gorgeous.  

Escape Kitty #31 – Seasons Greetings Kitty Style – Scraps Of Darkness (Based on the sketch of Charlotte - suepup.)

Kitty is taking time out of her busy plotting and planning schedule to enjoy the sights, smells, tastes and warm cozy napping fires of the season.  Before Christmas  came upon us, she was planning on setting sail as a pirate.  Now she’s gonna wait till after Christmas.  Smarty-pants  knows  good thing!  
To get into the Christmas spirit, Kitty decided to deck herself out with a wreath.   Be a real pretty girl for a change.

After wearing a pine cone wreath around her neck for a day or so, she realized it was very limiting –VERY pretty, but dog gone problematic.  It severely hindered her ability to reach her food dish or curl up on her soft bed.  Heck, she couldn’t even jump up on the kitchen table to annoy the family – the ultimate of cat annoyances.    There’s no fitting under the Christmas tree to play with the dangling bulbs.  She can’t run away when her cat brother wants to chase.  No way to get her ears scratched on demand.  
 Just stuck sitting and being photo pretty. It’s on the same level as wearing 6 inch spike heels – a great look as long as you are sitting. Oh it’s so hard to be the pretty girl.  Being pretty has its price I guess, Kitty! (eye roll).  

So anyway Kitty begged for me to take this photo quickly and get the dang festive wreath off her. I hung it in the doorway instead.  A much better place for a scratchy pinecone wreath anyway. 
Have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.  

Love Escape Kitty 

I used the Dusty Attic snowflakes for interest.   I embossed with Shimmerz Enamelz Sparkalicious.
On the bottom layer, I used molding paste and a snowflake screen from Crafters Workshop. 

Also included the magnificent stickpin from Craftysprinkles/Mandy Harrell.  

This was made using the Scraps Of Darkness December Kit - Winter's Eve.  Kitty is proud to be the Mascot Designer .  The kit is packed with such amazing papers and fun embellies.  It’s very diverse and can fit into any scrapping style preference.   Come check out the fun.

Escape Kitty #30 - Kitty Meets Chez's Bird

Escape Kitty #30 - Kitty Meets Chez's Bird

Escape Kitty is a pirate searching for a parrot side-kick to sit on her shoulder. She scoped out a hummingbird and he was too small, too fast, too crazy. 

She scoped out a pair of Macaws and they were much too large. 

There is a dear sweet scrap artist at Scrapbook.com , Chez, who mentioned that she had a pet bird she calls, Cockie. 

Kitty managed to meet up with dear Chez's pet Cockie. Just a stunning bird indeed. Here Kitty and Cockie are having a little conversation - looks like a stare-down to the average person but it's all in the body language. 

Cockie had to let Kitty down easy with a "thanks but no thanks". If he travels away from Chez's wonderful garden paradise, he might get his gorgeous white feathers dirty. That's just not becoming for a handsome proud bird dressed in white. 

So off to to some thinking. arrrrrggggg. Perhaps the life of a pirate is not so easy after all Kitty. Safe travels. 

Thanks a ton to Chez for letting me borrow Cockie! Please go check out Chez's amazing gallery. She is so talented and one of the first artists I tagged as a favorite artist when I joined SB.com. She's like the mayor over there always spreading sunshine and kind words and comments. 

I also used the wonderful Dusty Attic mini garden gates to represent Chez's garden. 

This was made with the gorgeous Scraps Of Darkness Nov. Kit called Purple Haze. It's diverse and playful and fun. Come check us out where Kitty is the Official Mascot Designer. 

Here I used some molding paste and applied it to a Tattered Angels mask.  After it dried, I used some Stickles  in Icicle  to give it glitter and glam.

I used the purple shabby chic ribbon that came in the Scraps Of Darkness Nov Kit and just wound them up a bit like little flowers.

Happy 100th layout post on Dusty Attic! Celebrate

Happy 100th layout post on Dusty Attic
This layout is a collaboration between mommy and me.  So we thought it fitting to use a mommy and me type photo.  we both adore Dusty Attic.

Below is the Dusty Attic column that we gussied up with paint and rub ons and gold leaf on the edges. 
The lace is a gift from Rachelle Sigurdson and the punch is a suggestion from Lisa Novogradski. 
Thanks ladies for such wonderful gifts and ideas.   My new favorite punch.

In our slick way (my idea of course) the column and our two heads make the "100" - course it's so slick that I have to point it out to you.  LOL  I am the Cat Queen of subtle. 

Thanks to the folks at Dusty Attic who make these little chipboard pieces to darn irresistible -even for the likes of a cat.

Thanks for looking.
