Feel the Peel Off Love

Over at Carolinezcrafts they are starting a new peel off revolution. Now I know what you are thinking.... peel offs... ICK ICK ICK!!! I HATE peel offs with a passion, so when Caroline said she was sending some for us to use I thought blimmin eck, well actually I thought a bit more than that...LOL!!! She promised they were funky and not the usual hum drum gold and silver sentiments... you know the ones, we all bought them when we started crafting. The ones that were either binned, donated to another newbie crafter or still lie at the bottom of your stash pile having not seen the light of day for years!!!
Well I have to say that some of the new generation peel offs are funky, and I hold my hands up and say I would buy some of them. You can see some examples from the DT here. In a bid to get you all feeling the peel off love, Caroline is holding a competition... all you need to do is create something using peeloffs as stocked by Caroline, and you could win a lovely bundle of stash, and a spot as guest designer, meaning even more free stash to play with... so what do you have to lose, go on... give it a go... peel the love man!!!
This LO used funky flower peel offs. Initially I thought OMG flowers... how am I going to use flowers when I mainly scrap the boys, but I used the peel offs as a mask to create patterned paper with acrylic paint, then used the flowers to decorate the blue paper... I think they work really well with the photo and the other papers. HS:MS
Today's prompt is 'greed'. I haven't had chance to take a pic today, so this is a total cheat take on Oliver's 4th birthday. He had just had his dinner at pizza hut, which included a huge piece of chocolate fudge cake, yet when he saw his birthday cake he asked if he could eat it all!!! I just don't know where he gets it from I really don't ;)

I agree..as soon as anyone here's peel offs..(including me) I think oh NOOOOOOO!!, but these past couple of years I have seen some designers come out with some proper nice stuff, I take my hat off to Caroline for having the ba**s to bring them back..x
