After restoring your iPad from the iPhone backup, did you then sync with your iTunes library?

You mentioned albums though. I think that you have to sync your music library through iTunes. It's not part of the backup.

no i don't, but my itune deosn't have my photos and imessages and such.
If you create a backup of your iPhone with iTunes it will of course also contains your camera roll, meaning all the photos you took with the iPhone camera. Of course you need to restore from a backup in order for these items to be moved to a new device.
