Chicken Salad on Croissants

Cut the grapes in half, about 1 cup.

Thinly slice about 1/2 cup celery.

Chop up Cashews.  About 1/4 cup will do.

Start layering each item in a mixing bowl.  Add 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup mayonnaise.

Open 2 cans chicken and 2 cans turkey.  If you want to cook, cool, and shred your own, feel free.
These are small cans.

Add 1/2 teaspoon Salad Supreme 

Add the chicken and turkey.

Stir all ingredients to desired consistency.  Salt and pepper to taste.
Layer in the middle of Croissants and enjoy!

This recipe is simple and easy.  If you gather the right ingredients, and don't cut your fingers,  it comes together quickly.  Enjoy!

For this project, I bought a frame for each letter.  I had to take the frames apart because I only needed the glass and outer frame.  I bought the frames at Hobby Lobby at 50% off.  

Somehow I had to secure the glass inside the frame so it wouldn't fall out when they were upright.  The glass doesn't stay put when you take out the cardboard backing.

So I got out the glue gun of course.  I put lots and lots of glue on the inside of the frame at the edge of the glass.  When I went to put together the whole thing, I found out there was too much glue and I could see it from the outside of the frame.  I had to go buy an exacto knife and carefully cut off the excess glue.  I hoped I would not cut my fingers but I am a danger to myself and can not be trusted.

I lined up the frames planning how they would look.  

The planning didn't do a thing because the end product turned out to be this.

I needed the corner hooks off all the frames backs which I had removed so I got out the needle nose pliers and pulled the corner hooks off of each one.  I proceeded to hot glue these to the corners of my frames.  Burned my fingers a few times.  I cut the ribbon and drug it through the corner hooks behind the top of the frame and tied them on the rod. 

I may change the ribbon and the heights of each letter ... when my back stops hurting.  
I really love it!
