Inspiration Mingle....

....on one of my Yahoo groups, we have a monthly Inspiration Mingle. We are given a pic to use for our "Inspiration".....anything goes. I LOVED this month's offering. Here is the pic:
Couldn't you just eat a couple dozen of those puppies?? I could!! LOL
I chose to make a Hanglie Danglie. I had a package of really jazzy red holorgraphic chipboard hearts I bought in the Valentine's day aisle. While I LOVED Their sparkle.....they weren't going to work for this mingle. ....see what I mean?
I decided on 4 coordinating papers and went to work. I knew I wanted a "Crazy Quilt" look for my pieces. I layered on the 4 papers with some new and old trims and buttons. I had Hubs drill some vertical holes in my scrabble tiles. I grabbed some 28 gauge copper wire and some more beads and made the danglie and attached it to the heart with a brad. My inspiration for this danglie came from the button fairies we have been making lately!!







After adding the ribbon hanger it still needed "Something".....so I grabbed one of my very fave stamps and added the 'heartfelt'. I am very happy with the results!! :) Oh, the back is similar to the front in papers and trims sans the button.....didn't take a pic of that!! Anywho....enjoy!!
