Always - More than Words Challenge September

Welcome to my Blog, a work in progress after a problem 
with self duplicating side bars.
I’m sharing a layout 
for the More than Words September challenge. 
I'm liaising with Blogger to fix the problem, 
but just couldn’t resist the recipe challenge.
The look of delight on my Grandchildren's faces, 
when they spot a plate of Biscotti, was what inspired this page.
I used Blue Fern paper, Montage collection, “Mercantile” 
as the background and fussy cut elements from the 
reverse side of another sheet of the same paper.
This is the sketch I used, flipped upside down, 
it's from Scrapping Clearly.
Then I added a bit of Whipped Spackle 
with a Tim Holtz flourish stencil.
My Biscotti recipe has been baked hundreds of times in my kitchen; 
it’s my most requested recipe and happily inhaled by Grandchildren 
and adults alike. When I ask "What can I bring", it's always, 
"Can you make a batch of Biscotti please'?
The first time I tasted one of these crispy little morsels, I was at a craft fair and I harassed, begged, my friend until she revealed her secret!  I kid myself that they are not too unhealthy and give myself permission to have more than one!  The photograph was taken on my Great Aunt Agnes’ antique plate.   
It’s one of my special treasures.
