I had so many issues with this challenge. I had originally planned on making a tiara out of toothbrushes, but after trying a couple of different adhesives, I couldn't find anything to hold them together except for duct tape, and I couldn't find a good way of covering it up.

Plan B turned out to be a pair of lab goggles from my CEGEP years, when I went through the IB diploma program. So I decided to put them to use for the challenge. I was hardly the queen of IB - I think one would need better grades for that - but I can pretend all I want. Tongue The IB logo is glued to the marble in the centre, and the six pictures on the lenses each correspond to one of the subjects I took as part of the program.

On the right side, there's a bust of Plato (philosophy) and a normal curve (math). The duck is there in reference to physics; in our modern physics course, our professor made constant reference to Fuzzy, the quantum mechanical duck.

On the left side, there's a picture of Guy de Maupassant (French) and Oleanna is one of the plays we read in English class. Finally, there had to be a caffeine molecule, not only because of chemistry, but because I never would have survived IB without it.

I know this in no way compares to any of the other entries, but after all the failed attempts involved, there was no way I was not posting this.  Tongue It was a lot of fun, though. I just wish I'd thought of it earlier so I could have made it more tiara-like and learned how to take better pictures of it.

I don't know - looks good to me!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

My daughters are in IB and I think that this is fabulous.!! That diploma is nerve wracking, so I think that a little humour is definitely in order!! Huzzah!

As a fellow IB-ster, this both highly amuses me and draws my empathy.  Very nice!
