Is My Birthday A Holiday?

Oh. My. Word.
It sure seems that time FLYS this time of year!
Does it really seem like it should be my Birthday again?!?
A girl can only turn 17 SO many times...
But it also means that it is Thursday and it is Making it With Allie!
And for my submition to the party,
I am going to share with you my Birthday (It's a holiday around here) Decorations!
It is Non-Traditional!
And I am aware that some people may not like it. 
But I do.
There are several trees that we decorate in our house.
The ones in my craft/family room are
Hot Pink and Black
Here are a few of my favorite parts of the decorations:
My Tree
Some of the ornaments look rather dark red, but they are a pretty deep pink!
And my star has gone missing...
I might get to making a new one in January.

AuBrynne decorated my MOD Tree this year:

My Mantel:

The Ornaments are my favorite!
I made them using Pledge with Future Shine and Super-Fine Glitter.
SO easy!
And the glitter is on the inside so it doesn't leave glitter everywhere...
I did Fuschia and Onyx ornaments.

So, there you have it!
My Pink and Black Christmas!
