Let's Go Back to School

It's Thursday, so that mean a NEW Ways to Use It challenge, but this challenge is SPECIAL!  Other than it being my week to host, we are kicking off a month-long theme of challenges.  All of the September challenges will have a Back to School theme, starting with mine - to paint!
Since it's the first week of school, we'll let you bend the rules a touch and use anything that isn't a stamp pad or sprays ink as "paint", which I did on this scrapbook page.  I used Stickles and Glimmer Glaze, although it's a little tough to see, of course.  This page is made with a BRAND NEW mini kit from Pixels by Jen called It's My Birthday.
How about something where it's a little easier to see the paint?
On this one, I used the Inka Gold paints by Viva Decor to stamp the flower.  This is supposed to be a Christmas set, but I thought those flowers would work for any occasion, and lookie there - I was right!  I used the Celebrate the Occasion sketch for this week.
But wait THERE IS MORE!!!! Not only is this a NEW Ways to Use It challenge week - IT'S A BLOG HOP!!!!  All of our Ways to Use It hostesses have a made a card with their challenge.  If you guess it, your card will be featured in their challenge post for that week.  So, hurry up, and hop on over to Toni's Blog to get on your way!
Today's whole hop:
Michelle (tygerpaws11) - Caffeine & Stamps
Toni (ravengirl) - Sweet Pea's Story
Teresa (mamapickle) - Mama Pickle's Paper Creations
Hannah (clarhan) - Delightfully Distressing Designs
Collette (heavensent) - Heavensent For You
and our guest star for this round - Lydia (UnderstandBlue) - http://understandblue.blogspot.com/
