Everything looks right.  The only suggestions I can think of are:
1) Rename the onload function to be something else (even something like "theOnLoad") [this shouldn't be the problem, though].
2) Maybe put the onload event handler in the body tag instead of as "window.onload = onLoad;".

I don't think either of those 2 will be the problem, but those are the only things I can think of.

It's a pretty minor issue, but it can be annoying (at least to me). Maybe instead of the link saying "Color Lila" say "Print Lila's Coloring Page". Or, find some way to indicate that it will print it.

One option (which I'm not certain as to cross-browser compatibility) is to provide a print button on the coloring page, and have that button not show up on the printed page (using a different CSS for print and screen).
