Crafty Ann's #83 Love Actually

Good morning all. We had a gorgeous day yesterday, I hope it continues. I eventually got a dozen red roses yesterday after hubby bid a hasty retreat to Asda once he realised what day it was!! I mean it only happens every year...what is it with men??
We're off to Edinburgh today to the zoo then hubby wants me to go to Hobbycraft to buy wallpaper for my doll's house so he can get on making it!! Wonder what else will fall in the basket.
It's time for a new challenge at  Crafty Ann's and this week the theme is "Love Actually".
I've done a layout for this one.

Using  Crafty Ann's latest scrap kit " A Picture Paints a Thousand Words" and a photo of our three children taken the day our youngest was born. The layout was created in Craft Artist.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and team's inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
