Take Denise With You on Your Summer Adventures

It’s summertime and that means that Denise is packing up the kids and heading out for a summer adventure. This year she is heading to the East coast to enjoy some beach time with her family. We thought this would be a great time to run a little summer contest in our own personal style of Flat Stanley.  Our challenge to you is over the following dates, July 17-31, 2013, you take Denise with you on your vacation.  How do you do this?  Great question.  You aren’t going to actually take Denise, BUT you are going to take her books. You can take an actual physical book, you can pose your e-reader in the pictures or you have our permission to print out a copy of a cover of one of her books(perhaps your favorite), and challenge yourself to win one of five categories.  They are:

The Farthest Traveled–  You have three weeks to take her the furthest of anyone in the contest. Heading to Australia? Take her with you and get a shot of her frying up some shrimps on the Barbie with you 😉

Funniest Photo Opportunity–  Put your creative wit to use with this one.  Get a comical picture of you with Denise on your travels. I’m picturing a pyramid of your family with Denise on top, maybe on The Great Wall of China…I can dream.

Most Places– Let’s see who can get Denise to the most destinations. Tag them all so we can keep track of them for you.

Famous Faces–  Let’s say you are having lunch(with Denise) on your vacation and you look at the table next to you and there is Kate Middleton(probably not going to happen with the baby and all), get a picture of THAT and send it to us.

Lucky Draw – This is the easy category.  Just participate in any of the above categories, and you are entered in this one automatically.

How this works(aka-the rules):

1.  Post your picture on your facebook page and tag Denise in it. Write which category you are entering your photo in. This is how we will follow along and keep track of the entries.

2.  You can enter every category(which increases your chances of winning) BUT you can only win one as we would like to spread the love.

3.  The picture needs to give an idea of where you are OR at least tag your location as well.

4.  Pictures must be up by midnight on July 31 in order to be entered in the competition.

5.  Have fun with this.  We can’t wait to see what all you guys come up with.

AND Finally, last but definitely not least, our Lucky Draw category:

I don’t have a picture for this because Denise will be collecting souvenirs along her travels to send out to one lucky winner.  She has great taste so I expect this to be something that you will want to be entered f

Have fun with Denise on your adventures.  We cannot wait to see what you come up with.
