LOVE the Buttercup color. I was very happy with the weight of the page protectors. I think the 3 ring will be so much easier than the post or strap I used to use. The album is definitely more rectangular than my past albums. Only wished it could be more square, but that is really the only thing I wished was different. ** in use, I have found you need to be somewhat careful in having the metal corner protectors scratch your surface when you go to pull them out of the shelf.
