Encyclopedia paper pumpkin---I think you all knew this was coming!

Well I just don't think it would be right if I didn't make so kind of very "Jaime" fall decor!
Anddd I can't think of anything that is more "me" than a dollar store pumpkin mod podged with my favorite encyclopedia paper...


 I added some gold paint to the stem 
to kind of define the grooves of the pumpkin.


inexpensive sweet and simple?! yes please!


I am going to be linking up to a few of these wonderful parties!
annddd speaking of parties are you ready to party tonight?!  Crafty Scrappy Happy. Me. Thursday will be opening tonight!

Awesome!!! You must have some great Dollar Stores. I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday (I know, not a dollar store) and is it just me or is everything outrageously expensive all of a sudden. Even at 40% I couldn't justify what they were charging for some simple things like leaf garland and ceramic pumpkins from China!??!!?

LOve that you used book pages! Is there anything better than decorating with book pages? I think not? Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Have a happy weekend!
