Special Order

Here's a special order I just finished for someone who contacted me through etsy. It's always so much fun when I get random requests from people! (Although I did just recently pass on creating a Texas A&M sign - I wouldn't know the first thing about doing that!) This request, however was easy and a joy! It's a present for a girl who just graduated from high school. It's got her favorite verse on it: "For I know the plans for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11. This passage has also been meaningful to me - especially during the time following my father's death.
My only guidelines were the verse and that the colors should be brown, pink and orange, so I came up with the idea to personalize the verse with the girl's name and to include a girl that resembles her. It's a lot of pressure to try to get my people to actually look like someone REAL- so I always give the disclaimer that they will 'loosely resemble' the person! I've got the long blond hair....hope they like it!
