Today is the twentieth day of the 31 Days of Halloween Challenge and Blog Hop, sponsored by Smeared Ink and the Smeared and Smudged forum!

To see everyone who is participating in the blog hop, follow the blog roll on the right.  If you're following the blog roll, you probably got here from Sue's blog and will want to proceed to Leslie's blog after you've stopped here!

Returning to my series A Gibson Girl Halloween, today I present you with Octavia, who has gone too far.

Her friends just don't know what to make of her.

The details:
  1. Clara (in the cat costume)--free vintage image image from The Graphics Fairy
  2. Henrietta (in the witch's hat)--Gibson Girl stamp from flonzcraft (also on ebay here)
  3. Octavia the octopus woman--Steampunk Lady Octopus digi stamp from Deb's Vintage Prints etsy shop
  4. Witch's hat--free digi stamp from The Octopode Factory
  5. KimberlyGeneral’s and Loew Cornell watercolor pencils
  6. Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Inks
  7. Background papers--from The Paper Studio Kellerkurtz & Company 12 x 12 paper pack, Becky Higgins Project Life Heritage Edition paper pack, and The Paper Studio Tattered and Worn 12 x 12 paper pack


  1. Octavia is awesome! What a progressive lady pushing all boundaries! Awesome witch hat, too! Great fun card!

  2. WOW! These galz sure know how to dress up! Octavia ROCKS! Fabulous collection of stamps. LOVE it! xxD

  3. Too funny! I do think she went a tad too far with it...what did she do with her legs? Hmmm....great job! Even made me think!lol

  4. Oh no, not too far, what was she thinking LOL! Brilliant, love the humour, love the images, spooktacular!

  5. Octavia was born a half breed. She lived her life as a human. But one day out of every year on Halloween, she could be her true self and not hide behind that human flesh. Great page. Love the subtle hints of color.

  6. Awesome! Love the three characters - Octavia is my favourite!

  7. Octavia is an original!
    I think Clara is feeling a bit underdressed.

  8. I am loving this, Sarah! So funny and clever!

  9. love the texture on the paper in the background. Amazingly wicked sentiment too.

  10. Fab creation, love Octavia's costume.

  11. I think they are just jealous as her costume is totally fabulous!

  12. I think her costume is RIGHT ON!!! Where do you find these images??? And your stories are up there with Sue's!!! Thank you for all your hard work this month!
