Crazy Love - a NSD challenge!

So I was out of town for National Scrapbooking Day, but admired all the creations, inspirations and challenges from afar. However, I realized that some deadlines for submissions for NSD challenges could still be attained, so here goes!

I got this lovely cut file for FREE over at The Cut Shoppe. There were a few sweet goodies in the file to choose from, but I picked Crazy Love.

What a perfect title for this sweet photo?! This was taken in the hospital when my little boy, Lachlan, was born. His big bro, Heath, wanted to help feed him, and CRAZY LOVE describes just how much love I have for these boys & their love for each other. I'm sometimes a little jealous that my baby loves his brother more than me! haha!

Here are a couple details.

So I also happened to use my May Counterfeit Kit, Sparklers. I tried this fun bokeh stamp technique on my background paper from the Forgeries on the Fourth post for the month. I think I still need a bit of practice, but it will do for this page! I love the contrast of color with the black and white title. And that was a fun theme in the inspiration kit for the month.
