how to fade edges

hi I want to take a pic of my mother and paste it into a picture of a beach. I did so and I adjusted the opacity to create that dramatic effect. but, the edges were too sharp and didnt blend with the beach.

HOW DO I FADE THE EDGES SO THE PIC OF MY MOM BLENDS WELL WITH THE PIC OF THE BEACH? im using PHOTOSHOP 7! thank you and any help is greatly appreciated!

  You can feather the edges with about 5 pixels to soften the edge.

  Actually your best bet is to layer mask your mother and use some gradients.
