SMI 3 Round 2

Every week is getting tougher and tougher, the participants must have been sleepless thinking/planning about the challenges week after week for the SMI 3.
I kept on coming to the gallery scrutinizing all the entries on this round and have a big dilemma on chosing my top picks. Just imagine what the judges have gone through and it must have been very hard for them to let go of some of the participants. All the entries have a unique quality on their own that amazes me but my top 3 are as follows:

o & d by Diane
This is magazine material! Really love what she did to add dimension to the photos, there is balance and the big photo at the center draws your attention to the other fabuolous details of the LO. And yeah I love the sweet and calm colors she used too, very pleasing to the eye. More details on her LO here.

Let her grow by LG
I'm a big fan of texture in an LO and this LO adds just the right texture and touch to an artsy, vintage yet modern look. The soft masking technique is gorgeous too and the monochrome effect unifies the overall theme. More details here.

bear Hugs by Lee
Again the masking technique is gorgeous on this page. I really admire scrappers who adds a special touch to patterned papers that uniquely transforms them into their own. And the use of recyclable material as a frame is very creative. More details here.
Note all the photos here were taken from the scrappinmoms gallery.
You can view all the entries here. The next challenge is nerve-wracking, goodluck ladies!
