I have always used just CM albums. I have about fifteen of them. I just recently did a post album from CTMH. I'm sure I like the post album. I had a hard time working with it when I was putting it together. I took two people. And, it's a different size.
I keep my albums in a bookcase in my family room. They are all different colors. But, I like that. I did stick to a specific color when I had more than one album for an event. For example, my daughter's wedding or my granddaughter's first year.
