Xyron...A love hate relationship..

I don't know about others but I have been having a hell of a time with my Xyron products.
I think the Xyron brand is good adhesive wise but I have really bad experiences with more than
3/4 of the adhesive staying on the runner strips and not on my papers :( I have this problem with both the tape runners and the Mega runner. Not sure if it is just the dot stuff or if it's all types but I waste more than 3/4. Silly me keeps trying in hopes it gets better but I have better application luck with runners from the 99 cent store :(
My entry into this weeks Peachy Keen Stamps challenge suffered due to the above but it will
build character LOL. As for the challenge I used the colors and inspiration from the image. The image makes me think "refreshing and relaxed" for me (corny alert) this is my hubby so I made a little something to set on his desk to find in the morning.
