Arduino motor shield to control RGB LEDs

I was wondering if anyone has tried to use a motor shield to control 12v  RGB LED strips?
It seems like it would work but I haven't seen anyone try it.
So, if anyone would like to step in and stop me before I fry my arduino and motor shield, I would be very grateful!

Can't see why it wouldn't work. You'll still need resistors though
