Dream As If You'll Live Forever

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! I have been having trouble with Blogger for a while now. People will leave comments for me and I don't get the email notification. I don't know that they've left the comments unless I scroll down to the comment section on my blog. Is anyone else having this problem?? I submitted a question to Blogger that has frustratingly gone unanswered. I've checked spam folders on my blog and email and nothing. I do get most of the comment email notifications, but there are a few people that always comment and I don't get theirs at all anymore. And many times, when someone new comments, I don't get that either. It's been happening for a few months now and I am so frustrated. Any help would be appreciated!! :)


I had a chance to visit my craft room this weekend and put together a tag to play along with Tim's July 2014 Tag Challenge. I absolutely love this month's tag!! I followed Tim's instructions HERE. I didn't have the larger sea horse die, so I used the mini one. I also didn't have the Bubbles Texture Fade, so I used the Ink Splatter Texture Fade


I tried to get a picture of all of the awesome texture. The cracks on the sea horse are so fun!!


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 - July
  2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Let's Be Clear
  3. DL.Art - July Linky
  4. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  5. Pause, Dream, Enjoy #14 - Tags
  6. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes 
  7. A Vintage Journey #10 - Dies and Distress
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

  1. Oh my gosh - this is just lovely Lisa! What gorgeous colors. Love the seahorse, the crackle effect is amazing. It looks like a piece of enamel jewelery. The sand is amazing - just loving all the texture and dimension on this fabulous piece!
    Blogger....ugh. I have been having a totally different problem with them - when I publish a new post, it does not appear in my reader for several hours (like 8 -12 hours). I've googled the problem, I have written to Blogger and I've asked if others are having the same issue. Same as you - NO answers. Blogger is enough to make me want to swear off blogging on some days! Sometimes the problem just disappears as mysteriously as it appeared - hope that it happens for you and me both my friend!

  2. AWESOME! Tim would give you a high five for this masterpiece of a tag.

    My blogger has been messing up, too. Sometimes my feed does not show when someone does a new post. Frustrating, huh?

    Have a good week, Lisa! hugs

  6. Another wonderful adaptation of TH's techniques.I always enjoy seeing how bloggers interpret what TH does, using their on-hand supplies, and usually I like the adaptations much better. That's certainly true here. Your texture & colors are terrific, and the sea horse gleamed. Loved those sea colors for Mr. Seahorse, and the raffia tie looks so much like the sea grass we used to have at our So. Fla. beaches. That's great sand at the base, along with the pretty sand dollar & star fish. Really great tag. Love it! Good luck with Blogger. Thanks, too for your sweet anniversary wishes. TFS & Hugs.

  7. Beautiful Tag Lisa, I love the colors! the seahorse is awesome and I love how you have given dimension to the starfish and the sand dollar and of course the sand is a great touch.

  10. WOW. I love the colors and all the wonderful texture on your tag, Lisa, especially the sand! Did you use real sand? And the colors and shine on the seahorse are dreamy. By the way, I've been having trouble with blogger for a while, too. My comments tend to disappear when I press the "publish" button. I've looked for a solution and can't find one. Hope they clear up these issues soon. Have a great day.

  13. Oh goodness, this is absolutely gorgeous! The colors and texture...well spectacular! As for blogger, I've had a few instances when I didn't get comments emailed. To get around this, I go to the comments moderation page at least once a day to double check. It's a bit of a pain, but at least I get all my comments! Hope you are enjoying your Monday (or Tuesday if Blogger doesn't send you an email! JK) Hugs, Debbie

  15. I am no help when it comes to blogger as I just let it have its quirks. Fabulous Sea-themed tag. Years ago on a holiday I got to pet some little seahorses and it was truly an amazing experience. Memories are to be cherished! Creative Bliss...

  17. So beautiful Lisa! I haven't noticed any issues with blogger, but as you know I'm kind of on hiatus, so I wouldn't really know for sure.

    Have a good evening

  20. Oh Lisa, my sweetest friend, this is AMAZING! My heart has envisioned gorgeous oceanic creations, but never could I create something this outstanding. It is breathtaking. The design, the amazing colors, the unbelievable texture... the way you squeeze perfection into tags is just beyond me. :o) Inspiring and stunning work, my dear Lisa! (I noticed a couple of months ago that I wasn't getting all of my comment notifications... I have no idea how to fix it. I don't really think it's anything we can fix, but rather Blogger.) :( Have a twinkly night! :o)

    Hugs and blessings,

  39. Wonderful TH Tag. I like what you used for the background & especially like the sand. I made my TH Tag & posted on my blog. Friend of mine has had a similar problem with not getting email notifications on when I have a new blog post. I've not had the problem and get the emails when people comment. Blogger did make some changes a wk or 2 ago and Microsoft made a bunch of updates to my computer last Wed.
