She sounds cute!
We crate Kit at night and when we leave the house. For the first two weeks he would cry every time we tried to leave him alone in the crate. At first, try putting the crate somewhere close to you. We kept Kit's crate next to our bed at night so he didn't feel so alone. If we had to leave him home, we kept a radio on for him and did the clock trick too. We also discovered that if we kept the room he was in dark, that he would usually go to sleep faster instead of just crying the whole time.
Also, you want to make her crate a happy comforting place for her. Never put her in it to punish her. Give her treats when she goes it. I even fed Kit his meals inside his crate for awhile.
Also remember that puppies have small bladders and usually can't hold their pee very long. If she's in there for awhile and starts crying she may need to go to the bathroom.
It was a rough 2 weeks when we first got our puppy, but it's well worth it in the end. Now he goes in his crate happily when we tell him too with no complaining. If you need more advice, there are tons of books and internet articles about how to crate train.
