St. Petersburg, Florida -- Tammy Church, 48, thought she was taking a picture of Indian Rocks Beach's annual fireworks show on the 4th of July. 

But when she uploaded one of the photos to her computer, she saw what she thinks are hidden images of Tinkerbell and Mickey Mouse.

"I think it's a $1 million picture," said Church, who works as an assistant manager at an apartment rental office.

This summer, Church appealed to national media, including the Jay Leno Show and Live with Regis and Kelly, hoping the photo would bring her some fairy dust of her own.

She says she heard back from Inside Edition but didn't get back to them before their deadline.

Now, Church's photo may be appearing in a book for Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Church says she was told the photo will be in the eighth annual edition of "Strikingly True," a large colorful book which Church says is in its planning stages.

Church says she just sent Britain-based Ripley Publishing Limited two usage agreement forms, including one that allows for perpetual use beyond the book.

"They might put my photo in the 'unexplained' section," she said. "I'm very excited!  It's a worldwide company."

Church says she'll be credited for the picture but not paid for it.
