Planning Graduation Annoucements

Is it too early to start planning the design for Graduation Announcements?

I hope not because that is where my brain was last night.

About 4 years ago I was asked by my sister in law to make her daughters graduation announcements.  
Talk about being scared out of my mind!  

I had no idea what I was getting into or what I was doing but we learned, had a blast doing it and I earned a large bag of twizzlers as payment.  Cassandra had custom made announcements and her mom did not have to pay an arm and a leg - it also sparked my card making adventures. 

 I think I only needed to buy the embossing powder and card bases for Cassandra - all of the other supplies were on hand. Cass is very interested in music and wanted the details on the inside.

During the process of researching how in the world to do this for Kaela I found a card a couple of years back and pinned it.

I love this card!

I pinned it and I printed it and stuck it the the drawer that we have for 12th grade for safe keeping.  I think this card woke me up at 3am this morning to do some thinking.  It would be very easy to mass produce with the cricut and for the most part light weight.  Kaela has already told me that I am making her announcements so there is not chance to chicken out.  

I am going to slip her senior photos in with the card so I think I might use photos corners to hold the photo.  My brain is in overdrive but I can not get started because we do not know where or what day graduation is this year.

Where is my planner & list when I need it?
