Always & Forever Layout

Isn't  Laughing Lola the perfect paper to highlight photos of my neighbor's wedding? I've been trying to figure out an "unusual embellishment" ever since Lasting Memories posted their challenge a couple of weeks ago, and I finally decided to use black pipe cleaners to form a heart and the letter S (our neighbor's new last initial) on my layout. I saved a space for journaling in the lower right hand corner of the layout but didn't write out any yet since I want to add complete names, dates, and location but don't want to publish them for the world to see.
