Did you compress the graphics at all? That could be your problem. I checked out your "topleft1.jpg" image = 48k? Just to check I took it and compressed it as a gif, "topleft1.gif" image after compression = 12k. It would probably load faster if you compressed them a bit.
The design looks pretty good. A lot of empty space, but you don't have much content anyway. I don't like the enlarged icons. Not sure if you actually wanted to have them pixelated like that or if you realized that enlarging them would do it and stuck with it. To me, it just looks like low-res graphics. Also would recommend a different font, the dotted outline text doesn't stand out very well. Otherwise, good concept.
