Wedding Layout for my "Marriage Book"

My husband and I were married on September 11, 1976.  I was just 18 and he, an older man of 22.  We've been together ever since.  It seems my wedding book is now falling apart, and my pictures are fading with time.  Before they all get lost and torn, I want to make a new book.  But, not just a 'wedding album'.  I want to make a 'Marriage Album'.  I'll take all those pictures (like our senior class pics) out of storage and old frames and put them in this book - along with other pictures and stories about the two of us.  Treasured cards and letters - memorabilia.  I think it will be something I will work on throughout this year.

I love this little bear, holding the lock and key.  It reminds me of a poem I wrote in which there was a line, "My love you hold the only key that unlocks the heart of me."  Which I included for the sentiment.  I got this bear and the matching little girl bear (not shown on this page) from Nikki at Paper Piecings By Nikki  She has some amazing piecings and digital stamps - that really get to the heart of our lives - perfect for cards and scrapbooks...Please take a minute to visit her site!

I would love to hear if anyone is doing something similiar with their old wedding photos, etc....I'd love any ideas you might have to make this really special.  I'm thinking of binding it in the Your Story album.
