Consumer online votes pick the winning designer, with participating consumers entered into a sweepstakes to receive a $1,000 cash prize.
The contest starts Saturday, May 1, 2010 and runs through July 31, 2010 on www.scrapbooks.com and www.diyideas.com. Consumers will be able to visit either website and vote on which tablescape they like best. At the same time, they will be entering a sweepstakes to win $1,000. There is no cost to vote or to enter for a chance to win.

Terri O says this is a win-win campaign. "I love being able to help raise awareness for important causes such as these and what better way to do it than to tie-in memory making products and services." she said.
