I decided it was time for a change, so my Trees Blog Hop "project" was finishing my Trees Club Scrap Assembly Line Scrapbooking pages . . . all fourteen of them!
My father purchased a new camera last fall, and since then he's been taking hundreds of pictures. He walks the nature trails in our local park almost daily and has frequent encounters with the local flora and fauna. I thought the Trees collection would showcase his photographs perfectly!

If you're ready to Hop, you can get started right away--the rest of my completed ALSB pages are below the Hop list, if you're interested. :0)
We have a wonderful line-up of talented bloggers for you. Each blog will link you to the next, but if you get lost along the way, you can always stop back here at Club Scrap Creates for the full listing.

|Backyard birds at Dad's feeders. My parents live on a beautiful wooded lot next to the park.|
|Bald eagles are making a huge comeback along the Fox River. We are blessed with sightings almost daily.|
|Mute swans swimming in the open water in the Fox River just East of the dam.|
|Lots of deer live in the park and the surrounding woods. It's not unusual for Dad to see 10-12 at a time.|
|Snowy owls spotted in fields in the nearby town of Freedom. Sightings were being reported on our local news.|
I hope you enjoyed this little nature-walk with my dad and his camera. I can't wait to show him the pages in person! (All photographs courtesy of Michael Chaffey.)
Wishing you a creative day!
