Also does your LED have built in current limiting resistors?
I had assumed OP's "schematic" was just a cartoon depicting more appropriate device containing series current-limiting resistors. Being of the Old School (college in the 80's), I ALWAYS connect LEDs with this polarity (with series resistors).

OP stated otherwise in reply #10. Or, to be generous, didn't provide enough information.

The led light strip I am using is in post #4 as a link. Attached is an image of the strip. It does have 111 and 181 resistors for each LED. I only want to use about a foot of the strip which is only 15 of the LEDs. I definitely don't want to fry the data pins. I will figure another method to wire. Thank you all.
