Hang Ten Trailer Style

HI Y'all,
About this time every year the temp starts staying in the 100's. That is when Mark and I both start thinking about leaving for a rest for a week somewhere cooler. I have had my mind on the beach for a while now and not just because of the terrible fires in that area. Summer to me growing up, meant piling in the car and heading to the beach for the day. My Mom would get a wild hair and say lets go to the beach! Lots of whooping and hollering would follow and we would scramble to get out of the house quick. We'd meet my Aunt (she lives down there) and we and our cousins would spend the day at the beach. Great memories to say the least. I loved this trailer and thought I would make it into a beach theme. When I was a kid you could still stay at the beach in your trailer and I saw lots like this growing up.

Start with the Trailer box From Camp Firefly. I cut it at the size it imports. As always I will list the supplies and kit, collections at the bottom of this post. I got most of the trailer put together last night and found I had not re-downloaded when they found a file missing, so I couldn't finish till today.
I added a door knob to the screen door and a stone in front of the screen to hold it shut a bit. I used the seagull and Hang Ten from the Beach Bum 3. The Surf-Board is from Beach Bum 2. The mat I sized way down and ended up doing more cutting with just my scissors to make it small enough. I had the flip-flop brads in my stash.
 The welcome sign was a scrap of paper I poked holes and threaded linen thread through and tied knots. I put a dab of glue at the point and held it there till it was set then took a brown pen and made a dot for the nail. To make the surf-board stand against the trailer I put a dab of glue on the lid top and the back of the top of the surf board and held it there till it was dry. I did the seagull the same way. The embossing folder I used on the trailer accents was a Christmas one called Candy Stripes by Tim Holtz. That was really it Y'all nothing fancy about this but I am happy with the way it came out and it will be a nice decoration to my room. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope y'all get a chance to take a trip to the beach  or anywhere and make some memories! Happy Craftin Y'all! Blessings Sharalyn
