Summer of Colour Week 3


This week's yummy combination is purple and lime green! To join in the fun and see what everyone else has created in this colour scheme, click the Summer of Colour 3 button in the sidebar. 

I had a bunch of gelli prints in the right colours so I cut them into bricks and built a wall on the page. That set me thinking about building and how we need to build on a solid foundation. I have recently revisited Marcus Buckingham's The Truth About You which talks about building on your strengths rather than concentrating on improving in your areas of weakness. 

It makes sense. 

You don't erect a building on shifting sand - you find the solid rock to give you a firm foundation. The wise man builds his house on the rock. It's the same with life. We need to build on those areas that are strong. Our strengths are the gifts we've been given to to contribute to the world. 

What are yours? And what are you doing about building on them?
