Sweet Pea Stamps Scrapbook - First Three Pages

I am making a little scrapbook for someone of Sweet Pea Stamp for them to keep and look at.  The album is about 15cm x 15cm so the pages themselves are 14cm x 14cm so quite a nice size to work with.
Here is my first page.  I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Here and Forever".  This image is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and a multi-image sheet (Sheet 52, Plate 247 - Here and Forever comes on the sheet with Heaven and Earth, Misty Allure and Autumn Tenderness).  I have coloured the image in with promarkers, highlighted areas with my Pan Pastels and white gel pen.  The backing papers are some from K&Co which I've had for some years now.  On this page and one below I've finished the pad.  Will need to keep my eye out for some more.  As it's a scrapbook page I need to keep the embellishments to a minimum so I have used a Spellbinders Grande die-cut which I have inked with a chalk ink pad, faux stitching, seam binding ribbon, flowers with brad centres and Papermania Glitterations.
For my second page I have used a Melissa Dawn stamp called "Shiver Meow Timbers" and I have teamed it up with a Teresa Sherman Treasure Map (this treasure map comes on a multi-image plate along with an image like Captain Hook - Sheet 8, Plate 217).  I have coloured the map with Pan pastels, cut around it, tore the map in half and then inked around the edge.  The cat image I have coloured in with Promarkers and Pan Pastels.  The backing papers I have used this time I was given.  I have finished this page with some coins and a string knot.
For my third page I have used another Ching-Chou Kuik image.  This time it is "Spring Nocturne".  This image is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image sheet (Sheet 50, Plate 238 - Spring Nocturne comes on the sheet with Purple Immersion, Starlight Magic and Owl Territory).  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, inked around with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  I have then stamped around the image using these same three colours and some See D's stamps.  The backing papers used are the scraps leftover from the first page and are from K&co.  I have finished the card off with some seam binding and little sunflowers cut out from some scraps of the paper which I've highlighted with Glossy Accents.

Hi, Kym! Well, lady, you have managed to create three more fabulous projects! Your coloring is just wonderful and I love your attention to composition and color in your projects. Shiver Meow Timbers is cute and your presentation of it is perfect. You really do a great job with the Ching-Chou Kuik images. We really enjoy seeing your imaginative work.
