Travel - Smashbook

I'm going to Belgium and France, next week. So i need a smashbook.
I made one on my own, with an amazon bookpackaging and was inspired by Melissa Samuels. She shows in one of her ustreams, how to make it. You can find it, when you go to her blog (Link in my sidebar). Look in her archiv. It was in march 2011, i think. I can't view it anymore, because i moved in april and my internet is to slow now.
Here you see what i made:

The packaging

Gesso on both sides

Various stamps with archival

Some Backround - stamps

Also adhered 7 Gypsie Tissue Paper with matt medium

The back

Inside i used a Tim Holtz Ringbinder

ATC Sleeves with prepared emphemera

A city map from Lille

Really easy and simple.....just a smashbook. Maybe it gives you an idea and you make one on your own. Let me know, if you did.
This Smashbook fit's the challenge Simon Says Stamp And Show Some Travel

Thanks for watching, dear bloggers. I always appreciate your comments.

Happy Monday
