Obviously, you need to pick her up to take her outside, and probably at other times too. She's started to associate you picking her up with something negative... Possibly as simple as interrupting her play. You need to make her asociate being picked up with positive things. Start by giving her a small treat as you go to pick her up. When she's doing well with this, go to giving her the small treat AFTER you have her in your arms. Make sure you pick her up lots of times, give her a treat and put her right back down again, so she doesn't think that getting picked up is always an end to her fun.
Also, make sure you are not startling her when you go to pick her up, and that you are supporting her with both hands as you pick her up so that she feels comfortable, both physically and safety-wise. Don't know whether this is part of the problem, but thought I'd mention it!
