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 #36 - Pirates Chillaxing at the Beach-Scraps Of Darkness Escape and Dusty Attic

Episode #36 - Pirates Chillaxing at the Beach - Scraps Of Darkness

I'll tell ya, sailing around the world from NY to Australia sure does get a Kitty "dog tired".   She commandeered  a sailboat with her pal Chena - the Standard poodle of fellow scrapper Maggi Harding.  

Commandeer.....you know what that's a nice pretty 50cent word for?   Ohhhhhhh Kitty - say it aint so!
Here have a look for yourself:

commandeer |ˌkämənˈdi(ə)r|
verb [ trans. ]officially take possession or control of (something), esp. for military purposes telegraph and telephone lines were commandeered by the generals.• take possession of (something) without authority he hoisted himself onto a table, commandeering it as a speaker's platform.
You two are taking this pirate thing a little too far.  You are just pretending to be pirates, right?   I am hoping to all hope that the authorities are not on you butt chasing you down.  Last time you tangled with the authorities as you rode over  Niagara Falls in a Barrel, it  cost me big bucks.  
Anyway, here they are chillaxin on the beach, just soaking in some sun rays and meeting new friends. It's cold and windy here at home so enjoy the warmth of Australia.  
Their hats are cute - the skullcap makes Chena look real bad.  A good kind of bad.  Kitty looks all serious here - with what I call her "poker face".  
Wait!  Kitty..... Hold it.  No I didn't say  "Texas hold-em" , I said Hold it.    Kitty?  Please say that you are holding pirate booty and NOT poker chips!

Made with the wonderful warm and fun Scraps Of Darkness Kit, Escape.    The kits are so  versatile that both Kitty and I can each have our own version of scrapping fun.  I tend to enjoy the prettier stuff and Kitty tends to like cat grunge.  It all works!

I also used the ever so wonderful, totally perfect Dusty Attic Chicken Wire Panel DA0177 for this layout. 


Special thanks to Maggi Harding for her continued collaboration and cooperation with Miss Kitty.   Maggi  is usually agreeable to whatever scheme Kitty dreams up.  At least I think she is...maybe Chena doesn't fill her in with the details, but Maggi never says no to the fun.  So, thanks Maggi!
