Flourish - fabulous, elegant, so pretty and now open

It was our very great pleasure to go along to the opening night of a beautiful store which is a new business venture for our dear friends Jan and Ruth. Flourish is a scrapbooking store with flair. Beautifully decorated, thoughtfully stocked with delicious products and with incredibly fabulous creative souls in charge of their classes and design (Lorna and Briohny). I can feel the promise of many happy and creative days spent there with these beautiful, kind, warm and generous women.

Megan took some amazing photos on the opening night.

the tres chic entrance area:

some lovely products (and one of my fave photos):

beautiful Bazzill (row after delightful row of it):

the glamour girls (Briohny, Ruth, Lorna, Jan):

some lovely guests and super scrapbookers/photographers - Rachel Richter, Leanne Stamatellos and Michelle Jamieson:Ruth and Jan with super talented and super fabulous Ngaire Bartlam - looking very much like a formal and fancy pic with the Queen :) : and lastly, a pic I like because if you look really hard you'll see a photo of me and my love :)
If you live in Brisbane, you should pop in to Flourish - it's at 3/12 Kenrose St in Carina. Jan and Ruth will make you very welcome.

wishing you peace and love, k xxxx
