I'm Off the Rails with an art journal tut...& a CARDABILITIES #105 challenge!

Hi there! Last month I did this art journal page for the challenge over at Scrap Around the World. [& got a 'shout out' for it, too;)!!]
I thought you might be interested in my creative process - which is a little Ad Hoc & totally unplanned.....but that's OK - we're all different, right?
Anyways, if you'd like to take a Captain Cook [a look!!!].... then I'm up with a post at OFF THE RAILS....click the link HERE to go directly there [do not pass go, do not collect $200....!!!] OK, so now I'm being silly as well as Ad Hoc *winks*.......meanwhile......
I did this little challenge:

Now, normally for CARDABILITIES I do flowers - they always work well with their sketches, & it helps alleviate my stash, 'cos I DO find them hard to use on LOs. But this time round I wanted to do something different. So I've used CUPCAKES instead. LOL! Seriously!! Why not, eh???
I got this set AGES ago from a win at Let's Get Trendy, a now defunct challenge blog...never used it [bad girl!]
A man card, I figured....I was pleased with it, really....
And that's it from me today ~ happy scrapping now,
Lizzy ♥♥♥
