Looks like @lars extended his hatched ground plane over the entire bottom layer.  His traces from touch pad to pin are not crossing any others - I may try to do that as well to avoid any potential signal noise.  I'll take a look at that tonight - shouldn't be too difficult.

I also noticed that the presents that are supposed to be over the touch pads aren't there - I'll check to see if that's just the oshpark job I'm using.

Electrolytic Capacitor - 10uF (1)

MSP430G2553 (1)

More progress - music and lights!  Current software monitors the left touch button.  Touch on the left button wakes the board up and starts the lights for 10 seconds.  Right button when awake plays a song!
