I based it on Sweet Stop Sketch SSS87. I didn't follow the sketch exactly and I didn't include the stitching required for the challenge. I added extra "brads" to keep the front from being too plain. I made the brads from a tutorial I saw a while back but I couldn't find the post to include the link here.
I love this grim reaper image from Just Inklined. Isn't he cool? I didn't get to use him for Halloween but he gets to make a guest appearance for a 40th birthday.
Here is the inside. I can't make too many "over the hill" jokes since no matter how old he gets, I'm still older.
Don't forget about the Sentimental Sundays challenge. The theme this week is "Baby". I am sitting this week out but I would love to see what you have to create. You can check out the rules and link up your baby creation on the Sentimental Sundays blog.
Edited to add some pictures of my brother and I. Happy Birthday!
