I am one of those that converted! I have been extremely happy with the 3-ring albums. I use We R Memory Keepers pretty exclusively now. They are so versatile. It's much easier to add material in even after you have "finished" a book (overall, I think they allow for more material in a single book too!). Also, there are 4x6 photo insert pages (12 photos to a page front and back) that make things go even quicker. We have a huge volume of photos, so I don't have as much time to be super creative with every single topic. Having the option of just slipping photos into the sleeve pages is wonderful, but if you want, you can even be creative with those as well! And, for those pages where you need a solid sheet (that can then go into the page protector) these 3-rings are fabulous! They allow for a greater variety of page types within the same book. I haven't looked back since CM fell off the radar. Good luck!!
