i'm in the magazine section of your bookstore!

actually most book stores keep the tattoo magazines in the "adult" section, so you'll have to be willing to take that risk, haha.

so, there it is, the april 2008 issue of skin & ink magazine. it's one of the cover stories, "tattoos and glue: the scrapbook revolution" by anam who runs inked scrapbookers. it's a really sweet article and it's actually pretty big, 10 pages, with a lot of layouts by some really talented inked scrapbookers.

i'm really excited that this came when it did. i've been a little bummed about not being picked as a fashionista over at scrap in style. i am totally aware that it is. "just a design team," but it's one that i really believe in and love. i don't try out for any ol' design team so when i finally find one that i am really into and get up the guts to put myself out there, it's just a little disheartening to not make it.

anyway, that's enough of that now! i am really excited for the girls who were chosen and i was glad to see alot of the girls i really admire and am inspired by on the new team! congrats!

fyi, the only stamps still available down there are; the fontwerks spheres, sea squared, cherries, bot! and turning japanese. get 'em while they're hot, haha.

Okay, how freaking cool is that!? You pubbed with scrappies in a tat mag?! That is awesome Morgan! Congratulations. I was bummed when big sis didn't call your name--you totally deserved to be on there but please don't let it get you down. Besides, you made history...I don't EVER recall a tattoo mag having an article about papercrafting. :)
