I went with my good friend Leanne to the Opening of Flourish, a new Scrapbooking store in Brisbane. It's located in Kenrose St at Carina.
A beautiful new store, set out perfectly, and the entrance is just divine.
It's a Photo Shoot waiting to happen. The girls are very stylish!

The ladies that own the store, Ruth and Jan were lovely and very welcoming.
It was lovely to meet you both and your friendly staff.

The wall of Bazzill is quite spectacular and they have plenty of yummy product to choose from as well. I can highly recommend a trip over Carina way to check it out...I will certainly be going back.

I also met Kath who has some great pics on her blog of the Opening and what the store looks like. You can check them out here.

The rest of the weekend was Go, Go, Go!!
Yesterday Zac had a little friend's Birthday party, so we dropped him off and I went and had Coffee with some of the other School Mum's. It was nice to catch up. We are usually rushing in and out dropping or picking up kids, so it was nice to have a chat and relax.
Then home for lunch then out again at 3pm for Little Athletics.
Zac had a Running Race, his 2nd ever at Little Athletics and he came 2nd and was quite proud of himself. They also had there first turn at Discus. Quite funny to watch, but they got the hang of it!
Then home to mow the yard, have dinner and I scrapped the night away watching the Finale of McLeod's Daughters. I'm going to miss that show. I've watched it from Episode One...I'm sad about that!

Today Jase and I have worked downstairs all day.
Working on our Renovation, and will be for quite some weekends yet! LOL
I painted mainly, but helped Jase with sheeting the walls as well.
A big job, but we are getting there. It'll be worth it in the end.

I hope you had a good weekend!

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx

I guessed it was the Carina shop when I saw your Friday post. The Craft Attic (Debra) used to be in those set of shops. I'll be sure to check it out!

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for coming to our opening, and mentioning us on your blog. We are pretty happy that people like the place as much as we do. We all deserve a small bit of pamper in our lives, even if it is just visual. It was great meeting you and look forward to seeing you again. :) Ruth
