Help Me to Choose - Which color Palette should I use for creating my mini kit for Round 3 of the 2015 Next Designer Contest

I didn't participate in round 2 of the NDC (Next Designer Contest) because I wasn't inspired by the theme but I do want to participate in round 3 but I cannot decide what colors to use for the autumn theme.  I've created three options using autumn photos of my home and neighborhood in 2008...can you help me choose by indicating your choice in a comment here?  I need help ASAP; only have 3 days to complete!

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Next Designer Contest 2015 and two new FREE to Download, Digital Scrapbook kits for Personal use

It's that time of year again...theStudio ( is holding it's annual Next Designer Contest (hoping to find a new designer to add to their team).
Although, I am no longer interested in joining an online digital scrapbook store, I am participating in the contest for both the fun and tradition of it; (who knows?), maybe I can, at the very least, gain a little recognition for my designs.
Week one's contest submission was due this morning at 6:00 AM - EST, which, much to my own surprise (in spite of a blinding migraine on day one), was a deadline that I was able to meet.

If you're interested in downloading my freebie contest kit or any of the other designer kit submissions, please visit the Digital Scrapbooking Studio Gallery for the 2015 Next Designer Contest here:  (I'm not sure, but you may need to be a registered member of their forum to gain access).  My contribution can be found here:

Here's the kit preview:

and here is a preview showing only the papers:

That's all for today, thanks for stopping by!
