I need some help!

I'm thinking of submitting some of my pieces to the "Rock & Roll Craft Show" here in StL for review to see if I can get accepted into the show. The only problem is that I can only submit 3 pictures total.

Which ones should I submit??? I only have until April 9th.

Here is a link to the site for the show so you can get an idea of what they are about.

Mexican folk art

I have a real love of Mexican folk art. I recently made this piece using Loteria (kind of like Mexican bingo) game cards. I took an unfinished frame, painted it red and put on a crackle finish. I topped that with a coat of black paint, but it didn't come out distressed enough looking for me, so I sanded it as well. After that, I decoupaged some of the game cards to it and outlined them with glitter. I'm really happy with the overall look. (the yellow in the center is just an envelope I put over the mirror as to not get flashback when I took the pictures)

New Style

This box is a little different in has a 3-fold opening and is a bit bigger than the normal book boxes I use. I like it though...there will definitely be more of these.

Spring Class at Sage Paper

These are the samples for my March 29th class at Sage Paper. I'm partial to the green one...the flowers and the girls are just sweet.

Japanese Motif

This piece is larger than I usually work with...about 4 inches tall, 3 inches wide and 1 inch deep. I found it a challange to work with all that space! (the quarter is there to show size comparison)

John 14:27

I made this one for my mother-in-law to give to her sister. I'm really happy with the way it turned out...the colors are very rich and I like the dove I finally found!
