Look at all of Graphic 45's Mail!

I just looked over at the Graphic 45 blog and saw the picture of all of their mail from the finalists entries...  and look, there's my box right on the top in the middle! 
Yep, the one with the tie-dyed tape covering the priority mail markings as I had to send it express mail due to timing!  Just wanted to share...  I thought it was cool to see my shipment on their blog :)
