I learned a good lesson today. Never laminate anything colored in crayon.
So this is what happened. Bossy stayed up late last night making me a super cute poster to laminate and use for Scout's Minnie Mouse birthday party on Friday. We wanted the kids to play the "Pin the Bow on Minnie" game.
She dropped the poster off this afternoon and I took it to a local copy store for the lamination. As the lady was feeding it into the laminator, she said, "Did you use crayon on this?" That seemed that a silly question to me. I didn't even make the poster! "She rubbed a hand over the surface. "I don't know," I replied. "My daughter made it."
"It might smear a little..." Then she fed it the rest of the way through the machine. "It smeared." She announced.
That shadow across the face is all melted black crayon.
I was devastated. The poster was totally destroyed and to make matters worse, I still had to pay for the lamination!
