Elf on the Shelf – Elf Stuck in the TV – Free Download!

This is our third year with Elfie!! Elfie spent waaay too much time on his Elf antics last year – so pressure’s on for a fun 2018 with our 4 year old boys and 1 year old girls!! Day 2 in the Brown family household this year is Elfie half getting stuck in the TV! Elfie (aka ME) is not a pro photo editor – this is a massive home job and this is the best I could do – but looks pretty effective on the TV screen!!

Click on the picture below to download, save it onto a USB and plug it into your TV/mirror it to your TV (or whatever other fancy technology there is these days to put an image onto the TV)!! Then just squeeze your Elf halfway and tape them behind the bottom left corner of your TV! It can either be a TV free day in the house since the Elf is stuck in the TV, or you might be able to see him stuck on the ‘Elf Channel’ (when the other TV channels work normally)!

Camilla and Madison’s Cake Smash

For Camilla and Madison’s first birthday, the amazingly talented Amelia from Cherry On Top Photography generously gifted a cake smash session for the girls. It was the best day ever for the girls having their first taste of cake and icing!! They definitely love cake just like mummy!!

I am soooo IN LOVE with these beautiful photos that have captured the girls perfectly! In all the photos it is Camilla (left) and Madison (right). Amelia captured their personalities perfectly and the photos were the first time they had ever sat on their bottom (they only ever sat with W shaped legs before this!).

If you are in Sydney, especially in the Hills District area, I highly recommend Cherry On Top Photography! As you can see, Amelia’s photos are gorgeous, she is a natural with the babies and it was such a fun, smooth running and enjoyable session!

PS. I used the same backdrop for the girls birthday party and smash cake. It is a hula hoop I bought from Kmart, wrapped ribbon around it and I tied the ONE balloon & some fake greens onto it with fishing line. I cut up a bouquet of fake flowers and glued them on with a hot glue gun to change it up for the smash cake and to go with the pink floral theme. I was going to unravel it all for the boys to play with the hula hoop but now I’m keeping the frame as is and changing the middle number for the girls birthday each year! 💖💖

As much as I love making cakes for my boys, I am over the moon to make OTT girly girl cakes for my girls! The cakes I made for the girls’ smash cake session were using my Perfect Buttercream Icing and Eggless Vanilla Cake recipes. For the buttercream I used 5 different colours & piping nozzles – it pipes beautifully especially using the tricky russian icing tips! The cakes were eggless as the girls had been getting a localised reaction from egg around their mouths – their mouths get red for about an hour then it disappears. I know some people can be allergic/not allergic to eggs cooked in different ways but the girls hadn’t tried cake before (let alone cake with egg in it) so I didn’t want to take that risk with these precious photos taken!
