Graduation invitationsWhat’s better than planning your own grad party? Planning it with your bff, of course! Chandler and Carissa met in their junior year of high school, but quickly became best friends. “We have so much fun together!” say the girls. Since joint graduation parties are common at their high school, they decided to plan a grad party together.

After looking at graduation invitation ideas, the girls chose the Full of Celebration Graduation Booklet because “it looked fun and different.” They took advantage of all the room for photos and had special photos taken just for the party. We love the bright colors they chose, and the way their photos bring out their personalities and the closeness of their friendship.

As for future plans, they will be attending different colleges but are sure to remain friends. Congratulations on your graduations, girls, and have fun at your party!

Top 10 Graduation Quotes

Graduation QuotesOne way to make your graduation announcements unique is to use a memorable quote to convey the message. A quote can sum up what you and your graduate have gone through during the last 18 years. It can be a good way to share the personal lessons he or she may have learned, to express the growth they have achieved, or to express their goals, hopes and dreams for the future. Here is a list of the top 10 graduation quotes for this year’s grads, to fill them with encouragement as they embark on a new journey.

10. The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet. ~Aristotle
9. You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world. ~Tom Brokaw
8. All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. ~Walt Disney
7. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

5. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~E.E. Cummings
4. Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference. ~Arie Pencovici
3. You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
~Dr. Seuss
2. Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
