Bird House Mini Album & Altered Bird Houses

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday.  This is a project I would like to share with you.  It is something I created for a friends Birthday.  I just love how the birdhouses turned out and I adore the album and hope you do to once you have a look.
This is the birdhouse on a pedestal that I picked up at Michael's.  I have a coupon so this was 85 cents.  With all the work I did to this it looks more than 85 
This is a little different shop of the Birdhouse so that you can see the roses I made and place on the roof.
So what we have here is a small hanging Birdhouse, a Birdhouse on a Pedestal, and a giant clothespin picture holder.  All these papers come from the dollar bin at Michael's. 
Here is the front cover of the mini album I made to go with this set.  This album measures 6"x6" and is made (again) from an album from the dollar bin at Michael's.  I created the birdhouse myself on the front of this cover and the bird was a brooch.
Here is the second and third page with embellishments.  The little lace envelope is from Cottage Cutz at The Scrapping Cottage-so very sweet and cute. 
Here is the 4th and 5th page of the album.

Here is the 6th and 7th page of the album.  The little birdhouse I used is from Heartfelt Creations Garden Romance Collection.  Below is a little video that I made of this project should you care to see more!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
