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.

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
