Type Warp Question - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have PE before the 2.0. I am creating picture in circle to print off for creation of button. I want to put type inside edge of circle. I am trying use the Warp Type + Arch but am not doing something right. I am not able to select the color of the type in the menu bar. Layer is pink when I am trying to enter type. Could someone please give me some pointers? Thanks, Susan...

    Susan, how did you make the circle into which you're trying to insert the
    print? I did it with the elliptical marquee tool, holding down the shift
    key while dragging out the circle, then followed with an Edt<Stroke of 4
    pixels. I was able to put print inside with the arch style and color chosen
    on the toolbar; no pink layer. Please say a little more about the steps you
    took prior to getting the pink...

    Susan, is it possible that you have the type mask tool selected instead of the horizontal type tool?

    Susan, Barbara has identified the problem without doubt - that will
    certainly give you the pink layer and no color choice. On the left side of
    the Type toolbar, make sure the first box is selected, not the second; if
    you 'hover' over them with the mouse, you'll see that the first one says
    Create a Text Layer and the second one says Create a selection; you want the
    first one!

    Way to go Barbara!

    Yeah, but you gave her the directions, so it's just as much "Way to go, Chuck!" 8^)

    Barbara,

    Even with the extensive list of emoticons (on the site that Chuck posted) I
    don't see 8^) and what it means? I have seen you use this for a long
    time.... finally asking you to soothe my curiosity.

    Just kidding of course. Guess I will have to start paying more attention
    to the meaning of these things :)~

    Jodi, you didn't reply to my suggestion on the Avery thread?

    Okay, everyone was so helpful. Now I got to wondering about that "Create a selection" option or the second button. What is that used for?

    Susan, one thing you can do with it is have your type in patterns instead of
    solid colors. If you use the Type selection tool with a fairly thick and
    large typeface, you can follow it with a pattern fill layer (Layer<New Fill
    Layer<Pattern), which will fill in the type. Just one thought on its use...
