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.

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!
