Jack 'em Up Pumpkins 2011...

Last year, these pumpkins were...
as wedding consultant extraordinaire Monte Durham would say
 on Say Yes to the Dress - Atlanta,
..."jacked up" with whimsical stickers and cute ribbons!

{For more on that post, click HERE.}

But, life is ever-evolving,
 based on the colors, flowers, and pillows being used for my front porch this year,
I decided the new updated version of my Jacked Up Pumpkins 
would be ...not quite so whimsical...

Added a cursive monogram sticker in black,
found at Hobby Lobby...

Topped it off with a bow made of scraps from my craft closet...

Added a few "fabric leaves"...

{Have seen these on several blogs, and "borrowed" the idea! :)  Loved them!}

Opted to forego the dots, keeping it simple...

And the Jack'em Up Pumpkin
2012 Model
 is ready for the front porch.

Have the fabric, now I just have to finish the pillows! :)

pictures soon...
