At last! My Memories is now licensed for the UK market. This is by far the easiest digital scrapbooking program around. You can start making pages in seconds.
It comes with photo layouts already created for you or you make your own. If you have a whole lot of photos and want a quick album you can use the Fast Fill feature and watch the album being created before your very eyes. My favourite feature is the photo mat. Add a mat as wide as you like (very narrow one is great for creating an inked look) and match the colour to anything on the page. You can add mats to all your photos as once if you like.
You can even download their kits as normal papers and elements to use in your PhotoShop/Corel layouts. There are lots of freebies and full tutorials on their forum plus a very friendly Facebook page HERE with lovely people who will help beginners with anything they need.

The page below took me only ten minutes to do. Background is from Lindsay Jane's Pool Party kit. String is from Cathy Krenek's Splash, alpha from Melissa Bennett's Just Chillin' and water splash is from Traci Reed's Belly Flop. Tip: Make an extra page in the MM album for notes/artist credits etc ;-)
Edited May 2011 - well, maybe it isn't licensed for the UK after all since my UK friends have been unable to buy it! They had better get their act together soon or it will be the competitor who gets the sales from my on board classes!
