I'm having issues with my layer mask everytime I try to erase from it it's erasing the main image. :( but other then that little difficulty this was a very helpful tut!

Nice - but a suggestion: use the "X" key to switch back and forth from black to white. Paint with white on the mask, don't use the eraser. Hit "D" first, to make foreground/background black/white.
