The deadline for completing Case File No. 138 is Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Thus, you have a week plus the two weekends to complete your layout.

So this is an Escape Kitty page as you can see sitting atop a stack of embellies and acting as if she owns the place - which admittedly she does. 

The rules say you must incorporate at least 2 items from the posted evidence list.  Kitty used three as she can be a bit of an overachiever:
1. Wood grain paper from the Studio 75 collection featured in the Sept kit. 
2.  Keys
3.  Measuring tape ( ribbon)

The journaling part, or the Testimony , says "Learn from yesterday, live for today, Hope for tomorrow. Albert Einstein. "
A quote from a very smart man....almost -ALMOST-as smart as Kitty.   hehehe
Well certainly less crafty than Kitty.  My testimony uses the suggested inspirational word, LEARN.  Far be it fro Kitty to not follow the rules.

This piece from her was made using the Sept Kit of the Month from the Flying Unicorns.  The measuring tape was from my local craft store however.

The background paper is from Studio 75 as is the woodgrain paper.    Miss Olivia 03 and 02.
The darling little chalkboard came on one of the add-on's from the Sept kit and I simply used a white sharpie to write her name.

I have a whole bunch of things tucked inside the page - some chipboard pieces from the Prima  Something Blue collection,  and the wonderful Prima metal dies that have been misted with Color Blooms.    They all rest upon a Prima Everyday Vintage Paintable card.

Thanks for looking and please play along!!!  Here is the site
