    figured it out...

    all you do is export the vector mask to illustrator paths, it saves as an .ai doent, open it up in illustrator, put a quick fill or stroke on it so you can see it and go from there.

    would be nice if one could bypass these steps and select the custom shapes that photoshop offers directly in illustrator, but for now this is what works from what i currently know.

    too easy :)

    yay!

    You can also just select the shape with Photoshop's Path Selection Tool, copy, and paste into AI.

    hm...

    remember trying that first and it didn't seem to work. i'll have to try it again, it would be easier to simply copy and paste. :)
