Anniversary Week Online Recipe Contest: First Five Days Listed!

All this week we are going to be doing an online recipe contest.
-Each day, Monday thru Saturday,  I'm going to give you two new items to add to your project (it can be any kind of papercraft).
-You can add one of each item or twenty...as long as it's on there somewhere.
-You are also able to alter it in any way you wish (so cardstock can be punch, embossed, etc).  -
On Saturday evening at 8:00 Eastern Time I will give you the last two things to add and you will have two hours to complete your project and link it up.
-If you are an international participant and need me to email you the last two sooner, please email me at practicalscrappers@gmail.com and we will figure it out!
-I encourage you to start today because it's just fun to go day by day, but if you can't start when you can and still add all the items in that same order.
-As you are working don't think of each step as your final chance to add that item, that's why I give you two hours at the end you can go in and add anything and everything else you want to it at the end.
-A winner will be chosen and announced next Sunday!  The prize will be a $25 gift certificate to Robin's Nest.
-Pictures/adhesive are a gimme...I expect you'll start with those :)

Each day I will post my picture of my layout with the next two items added to it.  So without further adieu here's your items for the first two days:
Day One:  CARDSTOCK & PATTERNED PAPER
Day Two: FLOWER (OR FLOWERS) & RIBBON
Day Three: BUTTON (OR BUTTONS) & BLING
Day Four: STICKER (OR STICKERS) & INK (ANY TYPE - MARKER, PAD, DISTRESSING, ETC)
Day Five: FLOSS OR TWINE & SOMETHING RED


 Day 5 Sample


DAY FOUR SAMPLE



AND HERE'S MY DAY THREE SAMPLE:
I thought I needed more flowers to accomplish what I wanted for the bling and buttons...so I added more.  You do the same - there are no rules about how you change it in between - just make sure to add the new items.  You can barely see but my button & bling are both on the flower centers :)


DAY TWO SAMPLE:


DAY ONE SAMPLE
There are other anniversary posts under this one, so keep on going!

Christine - just have to say I'm loving your progression here - I'm gonna add all of mine at once, you're so "brave" doing it element by element.
