Scrapping older photos

I have been scrapping this week. I just had to wait for some daylight to photograph my layouts.
Whilst waiting for my wedding  and Halloween pictures to be developed (I'm not the most patient of people) I decided to get on with a couple of older photos from my university year for my Book of Me.
Haworth shows my 1980s fashion sense off so I used those trousers as inspiration for my colour scheme. The patterned paper isn't quite as old as the photos, but not far off. It is from the very first paper pack I ever bought, before I realised that having so many sheets of similar paper was false economy. I spent a week in Haworth researching Emily Bronte's poems for my final year dissertation, so I included a verse of poetry printed on vellum as part of my journalling.
The other page is one of the very few pictures I have of my housemates. We were not best buddies, sadly, but we lived together amicably enough for a year and then never met again. Nevertheless, I've had the photo on my desk for ages in my To Scrap pile so I'm happy to have it in an album. The background is by Jenni Bowlin and I used PL cards instead of patterned paper so I could include several different memories from that year.

I can remember you telling me about your time at Haworth before and I'm madly envious I have to admit :) Love this page!
