Fist position the images so you an see both of them, Then find the move tool, Click on one of the images with your left mouse button and hold the button down, Now drag that image to the other image, Then let go of the mouse button, This should create a layer made from the two images.

Look in your layers palette, Select the upper one, Then lower the opacity to reveal the layer below, Now you can erase the parts you want etc etc, When done go to the layers tab and " Flatten " the layer.

That's about it, My brief above refers to Photoshop, Not Elements, But they are very similar, So just translate where required.

Good luck.....Smile

Edit: Nearly forgot, Don't forget to return the opacity back to a point that looks good to you, Before flattening, That said you can use the history list to go back and forth as required.
