Delete date stamped on a photo - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have several photos that were date stamped by the camera, and I would like to delete the date from the picture. I can select it with the magic lasso tool, but then I don't know how to delete it and fill in with the background. I'm really new to this application, so there might be some simple answer. I hope so! Thanks....

    If the date is the size and texture of the date my cameras put on there in
    most cases the simplest method is to "Clone" over the date.

    Just select the clone tool a size about the same as the date. Hold the alt
    key and click just above or below the leftmost part of the date, let go with
    the click, the click at the left part of the date and drag to the right.
    With a little practice you will cover the date and never see that an
    alteration has been done.

    Rebekah,

    Pete's methods are good suggestions!

    Don't forget that, depending on composition, you may be able to crop the
    photo to eliminate the stamp.

    The problem with the date stamps is that they are mostly positioned in one
    of the lower corners, where you will typically have detail in your image.
    Once you lasso and delete the date, you're left with a date-shaped hole to
    fill... much easier if it's a hole in the sky or a solid color, instead of
    something with detail.

    My solution is to leave my camera's date/time stamp option turned off. :)
