GridBagLayout problem

Hi, I've written some code below to add some Buttons and JTextFields to a frame. The submit button is in the wrong place. I would like the submit button to be 2 cells taller, so that it begins at the top of 10 and ends at the bottom of 70, to create a rectangle with the JTextFields.
I've tried several ways but have only been able to do this using empty JPanels (but I don't like this method since it leaves small grey squares on the screen, which show up when you are using a background image).

The code is below, any ideas are appreciated
