I've Been Published!!!

Anyone who knows me, knows I've been dying to get published by a national magazine.  I submit and submit and submit (you'd think I was into S&M, I submit so much).  Nada.  Well, today I found out that something I sent in well over a year ago is in the Somerset Studios Winter Gallery issue.  A good friend with a subscription sent me a scan of my page.  I had NO IDEA!  What a great surprise!

Mine is the shadow box in the middle on the left.  Don't know how well you can see it, but I am busting with excitement and just had to share the news and the scan. 
Two of my PID design teammates, Arlene and Angie,  are in this issue too, as well as some members of the PID yahoo group.  So proud!

Just remembered I took a picture of the piece before I sent it in.  Here goes:
