How to scan a notebook's blue gridlines?

I draw and write with a variety of black pens in a Rhodia Reverse notebook. The notebook's paper is gridded with thin bluish lines, which I appreciate to help with ruling, etc., and because I like how the grid pattern looks with my drawings. I'd like to scan the notebook for safekeeping, but find that my scanner will only pick up a fraction of the gridding. I don't know if the gridlines are a true photo blue, but is there any way to ensure that my scans will match how I see the pages? I'm using an Epson Perfection 1660 Photo scanner.
