A Fair Exchange? (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello!  Welcome to our June 5th Monday Challenge over at Lets Get Sketchy, which is a special challenge we have whenever there's a 5th Monday in the month.

This month we were provided with an inspiration photo, and we had to create a layout based on it.  I was inspired first of all by the green, and it immediately made me think of Sam and his love of Minecraft.  I had a taken a photo of Sam teaching Azaria Minecraft last school holidays; he offered her this lesson in exchange for a cleaning lesson, as he really HATES tidying his room!  Often she helps him, which involves her cleaning and him playing!  Now I always tell her that she's only to clean if he is helping!  Haha they are a funny pair!

I used my May Hip Kit, and the addition of some washi tape and a cut apart card from Pebbles (time wasted ...).  Like most on the Design Team, I was heavily inspired by the diagonal design of the advertisement, and the black and green colours.  I also added a pop of pink inspired by the small dots of colour.  I love the Basic Grey Highline Range which is included in the kit, especially the chipboard!

And of course the script thickets are so trendy!

And here is the inspiration photo:

Make sure you play along with this challenge, as its not every month that we have a 5th Monday!  Head on over to the blog and check out how the Design Team were inspired.
