A "diva" schoolgirl has left her mum in stitches when she woke up angry to find Elf on the Shelf had drawn glasses and freckles on her face.
Iyla Crawford, seven, hilariously moaned to her mum, Leanne, on video, saying: "It's not funny, I've got school."
Footage taken by the 36-year-old shows the adorable moment when she reveals to her "over-dramatic" daughter that the elf had scribbled on her face with eyeliner on Tuesday morning.
"Nah, has he drawn on my face?" Iyla gazes over in disbelief at the elf sitting on her bedside table.
"Nah, it's not funny. I've got school. Nah, Nah I'm not laughing."
Leanne passes a makeup remover wipe to her to clean up, but the seven-year-old scoffs: "I don't think it's coming off, you know."
The clip ends as she turns around to check if she still has the freckles, glasses and the word "hi" on her face.
She insists Iyla usually finds any Elf on the Shelf prank funny, but this time she was angered because "she always has to looking immaculate for school".
Leanne, from Failsworth, Greater Manchester, said: "Iyla's over-dramatic and quite old-headed and it really showed in the video. I'm glad I caught it on camera. It totally shows her diva side.
"Elf on the Shelf is a big thing for her and she's grown up with it. She thinks anything he does is hilarious, but she was angry about this. She wasn't happy at all.
"She's very into her image, so when she woke up she was worried about going into school with anything on her face. She has to be immaculate."
Leanne was nearly caught in the act when Iyla started stirring as she was scribbling on her face at around 7.45am, but luckily she completed the deed before turning the light on to wake her.
Before struggling to scrub the eyeliner off with baby wipe, Iyla couldn't resist posing for a selfie with the elf, showing her looking angrily down the lens.
