15- Episode #42 Leather and Lace Kitty

created using the Scraps Of Darkness Kits , CSI-Color, Stories Inspiration case file #15. and with the design sketch of the month from Dusty Attic.

The Evidence used this week:
I used the zipper with metal
I created a frame around the page
The monster is none other than Kitty herself. She certainly scares ME at times.

The Testimony technique used this week:
Inspirational word: Imagination ( Kitty's of course)
Document and Adventure

So what's Kitty's tough edgy look all about? Escape Kitty and her Standard Poodle pup friend, Chena, have been touring Australia these last several weeks. Kitty tries really hard to keep up with the ever energetic Chena, but her cat legs wear out fast and the desire to nap takes over.

In an effort to keep on sightseeing, she's had to be creative and use her imagination to find transportation. She's done well so far by hopping a ride in a Kangaroo's pouch but the Kangaroo had to part ways and hop on home. Her next brilliant idea involves wheels, leather and goggles.

Did you ever wonder where the ruffians stay when they are in the outback? They camp. In this orange camper driven by Miss Kitty, herself. Oh my goodness, can you picture them now bumping along down the highway? If you see them, just give a little wave and steer clear or better yet, turn the other way. I cannot vouch for Kitty's driving abilities.

One of the suggested elements this week was to include a "monster"in your layout. Well now, I'd have to argue that Escape Kitty falls into that category, because I really have created a monster outta that little Kitty.

I used a few Dusty Attic pieces here in my layout. First, the Barb Wire DA0154. Then I used a Paris Post Mark DA0320.

I must give props to many people for making this particular adventure possible.

- Thanks to my dear friend Kim C, or KimmyC70 at Scrapbook.com for the suggestion to add tire traks to the layout. Kitty left some tire tracks as she peeled rubber. I am not even sure how Kitty can "peel rubber" with a camper - yet another reason you should be turning AWAY from her if you see her. Kim is so very inspirational and creative and I often seek her help for scrappy 911 assistance. Thanks Kim.

- The photo was donated to Escape Kitty by Maryanne Stanford, aka Oziem at Scrapbook.com. Mayanne's gallery is simply amazing. Maryanne is currently traveling OUT of the country. What does THAT tell you? She lends Kitty a motorcycle and then promptly leaves the area? See what I'm saying about Kitty's skills? Thanks Maryanne.

- Thanks to Maggi Harding for letting Chena travel with Miss Kitty and trusting your beloved pup with my crazy wild Kitty. Maggi's collaboration on the Escape Kitty Adventures is so much fun. Maggi also has additional adventures on her blog, along with mind blowing artwork. Thanks Maggi.

- Thanks a million to Michelle Grant at Dusty Attic for this wonderful design. She really has a gift for sketches.
