Steve beat me. I wrote an response explaining just this. My explanation
was _much_ too complicated, so my apologies.
Fast and simple: Open your image. Make the selection you want with
the oval select tool. Do Select> Feather in your main menu. Then
do Control+i (or, Select> Invert) to select everything /but/ your
oval. Then drag and drop "white" from the color selector tool in
your main toolbox into the image.
Do Control+alt+a to remove your selection (or Select> None), and
look at the result. Want more/less "blur" around the edge? Do
control-z repeatedly until your oval selection reappears and
disappears. Start over, and select more/less pixels in the Select>
No layers, no complications.
Anyways here are some tutorials grouped by difficulty:
