Nice job Lee. Glad to hear I inspired you! Some things I noticed....
Your buttons aren't true .pngs. That is why you see the dark corner pieces on them. Instead of screen capturing my existing buttons, try making them from scratch in CS5.
Start by making a square 16px x 16px with rounded edges and simply add your symbols to it. Make sure to save them as a .png with transparency. This will give you that clean edge.
After creating them, you can simply fill the square with a different color thus creating the "over state" of your buttons. <-- Thats the other thing you are missing.
I would also like to see you use arrows on your linking tours instead of hands. The hands can be a little misleading especially since they over-state is the same hand (graphic)
Keep up the great work Lee!
