Paper Architect

I'm still messing with that silly ornament punch.  When I turned it upside down, I thought it looked like the top of a Middle Eastern building and POP! the idea for this layout came into my old gray noggin'.  My baby just started the International Baccalaureate program at her high school. This is an internationally recognized diploma and quite a feather in her cap should she complete it successfully.  And so...with no formal training, I became an paper architect. (grin)
I don't have the whole world represented here but I went as far as I could.  The Chinese characters are "knowledge" and if they aren't then the Internet failed me. 
I'm particularly proud of my free hand Eiffel Tower.  The Longhorn represents Texas the State and also the University of Texas the school my daughter plans to attend.  I'm guessing you can recognize the pyramid. 
I was at a loss for something to represent South America and Australia since they need to fit my color scheme and the available space. If you have any suggestions I'd be happy to take them.
Should you ever need a Longhorn, here is that scoop:  Round Tab punch, slip just one "end" into the small end of the larger Tag Punch - this clips his nose.  For the horns use either the wide or large oval - punch twice to get a curve - similar to the acorn cap I show a few posts below this one.
By the way, I have a few more ideas for the Ornament Punch coming soon.  Don't you think it is time you ordered it?  Call your demo or contact me... you know you NEED it!

Wow! Congrats on the IB program! That will be a great asset to her. Love all the work you put into this layout! The Taj is great as is the Eiffel Tower and the pyramids, and as always, the punch art is excellent. Hugs, my friend, and thanks for sharing.
