• Bling bling

• Time era from when you met

• Your song

• Wedding memories

• Newly wed game

• Vacation (Tropical, Disney, Honeymoon, etc)
• Your past together through the years

heart garlands were made from constuction paper and
sewn together.  I punched scrapbook paper and sewed
those together.  Last, I folded paper like I was cutting a
snowflake, but cut half a heart.
