Random Points, Pennants, and Presents

A little friend from church was turning seventeen this week and I wanted to make her something.  The amazing part of this story is that I:

#1 actually thought of it in advance
#2 actually decided on something and
#3 actually finished it.

I know!!

I'll give you a moment to be impressed with that astonishing news.

And may I interject right here, purely for my own satisfaction, that I did  banners before they were cool.  Or hot, as the case may be.  Back in the day when I was trying to come up with an original idea for an art challenge, I dreamed up a pennant swap (here, here, and here) and looked high and low across the webisphere to find examples to show the participants what I had in mind, and only found a few.  Now they are everywhere! Do I think I started them?  Ha! Ha! Har! Har!--that's me laughing a preposterous snort--of course not!!  I just want to state for the record (my own personal one that no one else cares about) that I did banners when banners weren't cool.

Thank you for indulging me........... I feel so much better with that off my chest........My one and only claim to cutting edge and all......

And you are quite welcome for that song.  :)

Moving along...... I had bookmarked this little pretty the other day and used it for inspiration.

I knew I would be working with a pink and black palette. This is what I came up with.

I must say, the gift was well received.  My backup plan was to lop off the last three letters and just use it myself,  but I could tell right off I wasn't going to get a chance at it!  Enjoy, Lisanne!
