The Greatest Gifts of all

If I have learned anything recently its that the smallest kindest gestures of love, family and friends are the greatest gifts I will ever receive.  How many of us can recall physical gifts received from childhood, the paper and the bows ?  from Santa or from Grandma?  yeah... me either.  But I can recall so may moments from my childhood where the memories will forever be etched onto my heart.  I can so recall playing kitchen with my Grandad where I would pour fake coffee and he would always played along.  Or snapping peas on the porch with Grandmother and as a toddler following my brother to the fishing hole in the neighborhood where he would bait my hand made fishng pole of a stick and found fishing line.   I think I could tell stories forever and not a single one would consist of the opening of a box and finding some sort of treasure.  Thus my title of this layout for the latest Stuck on U die cut challenge.  We were asked to create something with GIFTs.  
The photo not yet taken ;).... will be one of my sweet neice at Christmas.  

Hugs to you and yours this holiday season!!
