Well, in order to meet today's LOAD prompt, I decided to tackle Shimelle's/Two Peas in a Bucket 4x6 Love August challenge. The 4x6 challenge is to use 8 pictures; four on a 12x12 layout and 4 (2 on each side) of an 8x12. Then you will sew or adhere the two page protectors together to create "One page".
I have never scrapped on an 8x12 page before, nor do I typically use transparency to create the title of a layout, nor do I use the front and back of one sheet of paper (at the same time) to create a layout (8x12), nor do I use computer generated journalling. All of which I did on this 4x6 LOVE/LOAD layout. Here is my take on both challenges.
I will need to decide if the page should open left or right. Once I decide exactly where this "combo" layout will go in my son's album, I will use "tacky" tape to adhere the 8x12 page protector to the 12x12 page protector. This will create the look and feel of one layout made of 2 pages.

It amazes me that I only used 2 sheets of patterned cardstock. One side was blue dots and the other solid blue. The paper is 3+ years old and is We R Memory Keepers "Sky". The envelope is Maya Road and the journal block is Bo Bunny. I used Summer Days banner from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer collection. This layout certainly took some time to create, but it was fun. I will keep the idea in reserve. This paper is some that I "saved" because I needed just the "right layout" to use it. Three years later, I do think I found the right layout. I plan to use the back of the 12x12 side to "quickly" layout two picks I have of Walker in the car on the ride home from camp.
Tara Wildlife Camp is a five star camp located in Vicksburg, MS. John Luther (Walker's cousin) and Walker shared a room (joined that day) by a friend Jacob Bomgarten. This room was air conditioned, two double beds, only 2 boys per room, had its own shower and toilet, laundry service and 3 hot meals a day for one week. Both boys received their hunter's education certification after taking the state test. The pictures directly to the right are of the last day of camp. 1st: John & Walker in front of the life size deer in the hall of the cabins. 2nd pic: "Smurf" and Walker in the TV room of the camp. Smurf was a 16 year old boy in Walker's "team/group" for the week. Walker like any young 9 year old attached himself to "smurf" for the week. I asked Walker what the boy's name was and he kept repeating "Smurf". Walker has no idea what this young man's Christian name is. Smurf received his nickname from a t-shirt he wore throughout camp! Walker thoroughly enjoyed camp! Hunting, fishing, archery, riflery, duck call lessons, alligator management...a young hunter's dream! Walker is already gearing up for next year!
