Arduino UNO, Reed switch, 5V Relay and LED

Hi Guys,

This is my first time working with the Arduino UNO and building circuits. I want to use a reed switch to switch a relay and therefore light up an LED. I have the reed switch lighting up the LED perfectly fine. Now I need to integrate the relay in the circuit. I attempted to create the circuit using the guidelines here: http://www.glacialwanderer.com/hobbyrobotics/?p=9. I am having no luck at all. There is probably something wrong with my connections...

Please help =(
