LJ Idol - Best of Season Five - Week Seven

Best of LJ Idol - Week 7

Topic: Hope



Of 119 contestants; my 35 favorites. I wasn't keen on mine this week, which is why I didn't include it.

Again, I only included entries I could read. If they were friend-locked or the journals have been deleted, I could not include them. I apologize if you have trouble viewing any of the friend-locked links below.
