I think what's important is to find a phrase you love. And you say you want something that's "you" so really you're the only one who can find the correct phrase. But we'd certainly be willing to give you ideas.
Do you have a specific theme in mind?
There are a lot of sites online where you can translate things into elvish, or I'm sure someone here who knows more elvish than me could do it for you ;)

I wouldn't actually use an Elvish translator though, just because translators online tend to be really inaccurate (even automatic translators for commonly used languages are usually grammatically very incorrect). Are there any Elvish symbols from the book that you might wanna consider? Maybe an Elvish rune of the first letter of your name, or your initials?

^Yeah I was thinking more along the lines of sites which have the elvish alphabets so you can put the words together yourself ;)

I'm sure you could find someone (either on this forum or a more LotR language focused one) that can translate specific words like that for you into different Elvish dialects.

Are you looking to write something in English (or whatever language you speak) just in the Elvish characters, something in the Elvish language in our normal characters or something in the Elvish language in Elvish characters? Make sense? lol

If its the first one I may be able to help:

http://www.hockel.com/therese/elvish/combinations.htm

There's a link to a site with the Elvish characters, helped me out so could help you.
