Easter Cross

We had such a great weekend camping. We were at Lakewood Christian Retreat with Lexy's school. There were about 140 people from the school that went. They had games, real kettle corn on the camp fire, hayrides. It was just beautiful. And the best part was that I finally got to see the migrating Sandhill Cranes. They nest in Central Florida during the winter, then around the first of March start their migration north. They make their unique calls as they take off in the morning. I've been wanting to go see them for several years and they were right there in the campground! So I was blessed!

Here's the recipe for the card:
