A Photo Challenge To Celebrate #30SummerDays

As you all know my very favourite season of the year is Summer!  It’s all about the, beach, the sunshine, cute pony tails and popsicles, I just can’t get enough of this easy breezy season.  So when Staples Canada asked me if I wanted to participate in their photo a day challenge for the month of June, I simply had to say yes!  Staples sent me this sweet little Canon® PowerShot S200 Digital Camera so I can easily share all my pictures! Why will it be so easy?  Not only does this camera have 5x Optical Zoom, 720p HD Video, and a 3" LCD Screen, but it is also Wifi enabled!  I will be putting it to the test for my challenge!


Do you know how a photo challenge works?  Each day for the entire month I am provided with photo prompts.  All you have to do is follow along, using the suggestions as a rough guideline,  and post your captures!  You can share them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook too.  I would LOVE it if you joined in and played along!  Simply print off the list below, grab your camera and post those photos!  Be sure to tag them with @StaplesCanada and #30SummerDays so we can all follow along as we share those unforgettable summer moments!
