    This is a great tutorial! I wish, wish, wish PSE could do this, too - it's a pain to do it manually.

    Thanks for this tut. I just found out how to create a circle path, etc. to type text on a path, but was looking for a way to do it inside a circle. I would love to know how to create text on special path, like a spiral, or how to have the text follow the curves of an element like a flourish for example. Hope I am making sense; I just can't seem to describe it.

  8. Lauren thank you so much for posting this tutorial. I've been trying for ages to learn how to journal with text in a path. Whoo hoo, I can do it now, and here's the proof. http://www.digitalscrapbookplace.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=281394 thank you so much again Lauren. Keep thos Friday things coming.

  9. Awesome tutorial Lauren. Thanks so much.
