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 verb [ trans. ]
officially take possession or control of (something), esp. for military purposes • take possession of (something) without authority ---------------------------------
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 your 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. (go to her blog to read all about that crazy adventure).
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! Please check out Scraps Of Darkness.
I also used the ever so wonderful, totally puuuuuurrfect Dusty Attic Chicken Wire Panel DA0177 for this layout.
Special thanks to Maggi Harding ( Maggi43) 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!
