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's Got Her Eye on You - 3rd Eye Stamps New Releases

Kitty's got her eye on you.  Oh yes she does. 

OK - well she at least has her eye on 3rd Eye Stamps. 
Big Kitty fan of the 3rd Eye Stamps.  

In fact, Kitty thinks this is a great photo with only one eye of hers showing because it's the her idea of the 3rd eye.  And what better eye to lend to someone than a cat eye. 

3rd Eye Stamps are designed by Drycha ( Karolina Stopyra), a fellow member of the Scraps Of Darkness Design Team so Kitty is lending her support. 

Now scoot and check them out and look for them all over cool and clever art work.

Escape Kitty - Meet Me at the Hoedown - CSI Colors, Stories, Inspiration and Once Upon A Sketch

Escape Kitty - Meet Me at the Hoedown.
The best way to read this story is to listen to the music.  Kickin up a little Hoedown, country atmosphere. Let's have some FUNNNNN. 

Brooks & Dunn "Boot Scootin Boogie "

Puuuuurfect -now that we've got some tunes going in the background, let's get on with Kitty's story. 

Kitty slapped this together for the CSI - Colors, Stories, Inspiration case file #36 AND Once Upon A Sketch.  The two challenges are teaming up for the month of September.  The design is based on the sketch by Nadia Cannizzo.  Thanks Nadia! 

The Evidence:  leaves and mesh
The Testimony:  Acrostic - this is a type of poem that uses the letters of a topic word to  begin each line.

So what's she doing? 
It's fall.  Fall reminds Kitty of hoedown season.  Not really sure why, but who's to make sense of Kitty's mind?  So she's got her cowgirl outfit on, boots and all.  Now she's just gotta wait for the puuurfect opportunity to scoot and skedaddle.    A little "Boot Scootin Boogy" Kitty style if you will. 

Escape Kitty
Each fall when the leaves turn red,
Something starts a tappin underneath my bed.
Cowboy boots,
All ready to go.
Pop them on her front paws and
Escape off to the show.

Kitty's going to the hoedown
In the blink of an eye
To see her favorite country band
To dance neath starry sky.
(Ya'll are invited)  wink - giddyup.

I used a piece of Dusty Attic Leafy Stem DA0447 to blend in with my Sizzix leaf die cuts.   I added some embossing powders to them to help make them a bit more Fall like.  I used Tim Holtz Antique Linen  and Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Byzantine Bronze. 

Thanks for looking.

And now for the design reveals:

Relaxing for but a moment.....
This is Escape Kitty's Prom date,  Spike.  He is the pup-child of Michelle Phillips, also known as  Bubbachooka.  Spike had invited Kitty to his prom when she was on her tour of Australia back in March.  This is a photo of the two of them taking a breather to relax for but a moment and grab some fresh air on the patio. Hoping for a slight breeze perhaps to cool them off.  

See, they've been dancing up a storm.  Look how exhausted Spike is with his tongue hanging out.  Kitty can most certainly be a little energetic once you get her on the dance floor and Spike seems to be paying the price. 

Hurry and rest up, Spike.  Kitty's favorite song is on!

She shopped and shopped but could not find a prom gown befitting a feline so she is a tad over accessorized to detract from not having a dress.  Honestly Kitty, you look ravishing in your feathered headpiece. 

I used the Dusty Attic Baroque Corners DA0543 here with a coating of Shimmerz Enamelz in Sparkliscious. 

This was created for CSI-Colors, Stories, Inspiration case file #34.

Birds  and stripes

Journal Inspiration:  Relax

This sketch was created by Charlotte Jenkins,  also known as suepup in the scrapping world. 

Please consider joining us at Scraps of Elegance .  The kits are amazing.  The creativity is flowing.  And the Design Team includes a Designing Mascot Kitty.  What could be better?  
Also go and check out CSI- Colors, Stories, Inspiration

Special thanks to Michelle Phillips for being such a great sport with her buddy, Spike.  

Thanks so much for spending the time
