I WANT TO PUT A TITLE AROUND A CIRCLE JOURNAL PAPER I HAVE... SO HOW DO I USE TEXT IN A SEMI CIRCLE?

Personally, I don't know how to make type paths on my own (we can't make them in PSE), so I just use one of the many available in the boutique:
ScrapSimple Type Paths: Shape Up
ScrapSimple Type Paths: Around the Page
You can do a search on the forum for "Text Path" (with quotations) and find several pages of threads. I only went through a few of them to look for instructions, but maybe this one will help:

In PE I can type a word or sentence and then right across the top of my workspace, where all the specifics for text are (like font, size, color, etc) is a "T" with a curved arrow underneath it. (In mine it's next to the "T" for horizontal/vertical text changes.)
If you click on that "T" with your text layer active it will bring up the "warp text" dialog box. I usually change "none" to "Arc" (or one of the other choices) and it will give your sentence a bend.
Playing with the sliders will change the bend or the severity of the bend.
Hope that helps a bit!

Wow, that is so cool - I'm hoping it can be done in PE and I'm going to try it out!

My suggestion would be to type the phrase many times with some space between them until it completes the circle. You could put an asterisk in the center of the space between phrases or place some kind of embellishment between them.
