This gets all the gold stars for originality and a giant A for effort.

This woman was sitting down with her boyfriend and his family for a group Christmas photo when she got the surprise of her life following a little sneaky family and letter shuffling. Having knelt down to form the phrase 'Merry Xmas' on their tshirts for the photo, the boyfriend then got a few members to change places and snapped a second shot to arrange the words 'Marry Me?', and she was none the wiser until he asked her to check the photo out. Genius.

A great proposal, but she's probably going to be wary and on edge for every family photo for the rest of her life now.
