I Have Been Keeping a Big Secret......

Oh my goodness---I can FINALLY tell you!!!   I have been keeping this secret since September and if I don't let it out I am going to burst. (this is just a little hint) 
Back in September I received an excited e-mail from my friend, Joyce regarding a new magazine that was to premier in January.  It was going to feature items created with the Cricut machine.  She encouraged me.... " They are still looking for submissions.  I think you should send something"  So I thought sure why not--I will give it a try.  Imagine my surprise when a few days later I received notification that they would be publishing two of my submissions in this wonderful magazine.
It hit the news stand today so I can finally show  you the selected items.....
First was this sweet little sailboat card I created using the New Arrival cartridge.  The above picture was one that I took and here is the page in the magazine.
The second item selected was this wedding cake gift card holder that I created for a friends wedding. Again this is my picture.....

And this is how it looks in the magazine......
If you look closely the sailboat card was created by "Mimi Panormios" while the wedding cake was created by "Maureen Panormios"  A little confusing but we are one in the same.  For those who don't know Maureen is my given name.  No one usually calls me that except for my mother when I done something to drive her crazy which hopefully isn't often these days.  :)
I am so thrilled to be a part of this amazing publication and so excited to be able to  finally share my excitement with you.

My my my! I just knew you had MAJOR talent! Wow, how fun to have two of your projects in this new publication! Congratulations BIG TIME! I agree with Joyce, your work is SO beautiful. I'm sure they wanted to use only your work for their magazine! I hope I can take a look at this at the stores here soon, I'll call out "I *know* her!!!"

With all the weddings I have on our calendar this year your bridal "cake" may be an idea I use!
Hugs, Heidi
