Re: color profile. Calibration part is fine. Choosing a "working space" is another matter. You have chosen to convert all your images to a profile that looks good only for that one particular printer. If you ever want to use a different printer, or post them on the web you will need to convert them to a different profile. Saving your images with a profile other than aRGB (adobe) or sRGB is not such a good idea. Have you tried the sRGB with your HP?
I recommend sRGB because it is pretty universal.
Here's some good reading: (select INTRODUCTION, COLOR SPACE)

Leah, if she is cloning using "all layers" she will most likely see the colors come through.
Another reason to convert to grayscale before starting this portion of the clean up.

Thanks for the link, Vicki. I certainly have some interesting reading to do this weekend. Your right....when I am cloning I do have all layers checked.

Yessss! Exactly! You know what I'm talking about, Bonnie. I get so confused. I think I'll stick to nice and friendly meta-images instead of real retouching
