If she just turned 2 and isn't cooperating then I would take a break and try again in another month or two.  There isn't a real rush and trying to force her will just make both of your lives harder.

she was going on her own very well but we went to my sisters house for a while and now she only sits there because she thinks if she tells me she goes potty she will get a prize

She trying to work the system, smart.  I would stop giving her prizes.  I never gave prizes at all for potty training and it all went very well.  Treat it as any other developmental skill, such as walking, clapping, talking, etc.  Show her what to do and encourage her but don't force.  It is also common for children to relapse.

I have a sticker chart for my son. After 20 stickers (one for each pee, one for washing his hands), he gets a TV show.
